I've seen the DIY on myturbodiesel.com and read that you can either fill the DSG fluid from the top or from the bottom. Filling from the bottom requires using the special filling tool (or DIY tool) and also the plastic snorkel.
I also read that you could fill the fluid from the top where the filter goes. Are there any issues/problems associated with filling the fluid from the top?
Can't you simply just drain and measure how much oil comes out of the transmission and then add that amount of fluid in from the top of the transmission?
Any info would be appreciated.

I just changed my fluid and used the top fill method. Absolutely painless way to do it. It does take a long time to refill from the top, but that gives you time to clean up some of your tools and have a beer. Make sure you get the funnel in the DIY that fits the fill hole.
I'd stop drinking beer, but I'm no quitter.
