    Manual transmission fluid change

    Looking at the owners manual I do not find a spec for the amount or a listing of the recommended grade or type of gear oil. I can think of a coupe of reasons why the worst being it is never meant to be changed (there is no such thing as a lifetime lubricant) or possible it is drained and filled until it is topped up. What is the insider info on this. I would like to change along with the engine oil at 1-2K. Lovin' my two day old Pearl White Sport, the paint is really nice and the ride which was pretty rough is starting to smooth out. When I got it delivered they put 30 front and 35 rear and setting the tires to spec actually made the ride better, headlights are now aimed correctly.

    OK a search found a article from Europe with pics that says 60K (not sure miles or kilometers) is the spec for changing. Requires 1.5 kg (weight ?) of synthetic 75W90 gear oil. You add oil until it starts to flow out of the fill hole. So it is at least changeable and sounds like it should be good for awhile and come with synthetic as a spec.
