      Hello all,

      I want to change ATF. I really appreciate if you specifically answer the following questions.
      Car is 1.8t, 1998, SW, 249.000 miles.
      Transmission shifts nice, although rarely downshifts are harder.

      1-) FEBI ATF versus PENTOSIN?

      I have searched a lot about the two brands. The cheapest Pentosin G 052 162 A2 is 15.00$ at O'Reilly Atlanta. Febi G 052 162 A2 is 13$ online order shipping included.
      Considering it will take around 7 quarts, which brand is preferable?.
      (Then there is the German brand from Blaupart. http://www.blauparts.com/proddetail.asp?prod=F2A1007-F


      I want to remove the entire fluid from the transmission. How am I going to drain the ATF in torque converter? If I did this, how much more ATF do I need besides 6 QT?

      And for those asking about camber and adjustable control arms, here is how much camber you get with stock control arms.
