I was thinking the greatest benefit would be cheaper cost versus wet as his previous car was a Jetta with the DSG and I was shocked at the price of servicing every 40,000 miles with the fluid around 225.00 plus other recommendations that always seemed to stretch the bill to 600.00!
There is no scheduled maintenance for at least 10 years/ 150k miles. Although given that its basically a manual transmission a small fluid change might not hurt around 50k or so (it only uses 1.9 qts of fluid) inside the transmission case.
