Dealer I worked at a few years ago pulled this crap. I never took the BG stuff and insisted on the OEM fluid, but the other guys put what ever in. After I moved to a different dealer I found out they had been getting failed DSGs from the dealer I just left and reported the issue to VW. Might be part of the reason why I saw the BG rep and service manager scrambling around shortly before I left that dealer.

The BG stuff is red ATF with additives to make it work in a lot of different transmissions. BG rep had nothing when I pointed out that DSG was basically a manual with computer control and used gear oil with friction modifier.

Last I heard that dealer (and maybe BG) had paid for several failed transmissions.

OP - get that fluid changed STAT! Most of the failures we had were very soon after service.
