DCT wear and tear?

Hi all,

I am getting my 1200mi service today, can't wait to get my car back.

I reminded the SA about the transmission fluid and he said..."don't worry with big eyes...WE KNOW".

My curiousity is, why don't we need to change the fluid?

I know the GT-R must be changed and I think 911 PDK too.

Some secret formula going on here by BMW? I leaning towards changing it myself at 40-50K miles just in case unless someone has good knowledge why it is truly a lifetime system for the fluid and clutches.

Something about the DCT being sealed for life.
