According to Redline, that's the proper weight for my particular car. I double-checked by using the application guide on their website and the result confirmed what they told me. Plus, there are a few guys on the Audi forums who are using the same Redline MTL without any issues.
Honestly, I would have never changed the transmission oil if I didn't get the notchy 2nd gear shift in cold weather. It was a little annoying last winter and I figured that a simple swap to MTL would completely eliminate the notchy shifting. If not, I guess I wasted my time & money. I'll find out as soon as the temps drop again.
