The only reason I used the friction modified version was because there was a review on Amazon from a TDI driver. He said it was good, so I tried it.

If shifting gets notchy again I'll try the regular synchromesh oil.

So far, I'm very happy with this oil. I wasn't sure if I should believe the hype on the internet, but I do now.

I'm another user of the Pennsoil Syncromesh fluid, and have no complaints.

My car's trans is more than little worn, but the fluid change made it much better behaved.

I've been running G060 in my 2001 alh tdi for about the last 6 years. Due for another change. Looks like G060 is superceded to G070. So what's the concensus? Go G070 or go synchromesh? No complaints about shifting presently, 245k miles.
