Yes - I remember telling them to make sure they change it with the right oil as this had become a big issue at tthe time (as some people got the wrong fluid which caused the box to be damaged). I had called them a couple of weeks before the service because I suspected that they would not have the DCT oil in stock (which was the case as they then ordered it from Germany).

I know that the DCT oil is there for life but I wanted to have it changed in the break in service so the system would be washed out of any metal particles (which is what the break in service is mostly about).
