    Blinker fluid is the most looked over of all the fluid changes on these cars. Acme makes a great blend.

    oil, antifreeze, rearend, and tranny all immediately come to mind. The rear and tranny are the most overlooked fluids on a car. They're just as important as the rest. Are you a4 or m6? If a4 go ahead and change the tranny filter while you have the pan dropped.

    there is no need to have a party to change fluids.
    your tranny fluid *lucky for u* is really easy since ure an M6.
    oil,tranny, coolant and rear are the most important ones to me.

    Sure thing..do me a favor and crimp the blinker fluid hose before the blinker...it's located before the passenger side johnson rod..if you come to the shanty shaft you've gone too far.
