I am very sorry in advance for this being a nothing answer, but I don't want members left hanging and thinking there is no one here if it's a hard question.

I do not have an answer for your auto box oil question but I'm sure by the time it's time to change the fluid, you will have found out.
No matter what the fluid turns out to be...it's NOT "filled for life"! The fluid will need to be changed on a "regular" basis, even if "regular" means every 5 years.

With a brand new car you have a chance to prolong it's lifespan by doing proper preventative maintenance. Most people who complain about their car being a "load" typically don't do regular preventative maintenance!

Good luck.

Thanks. As i thought. Ill consult the dealer where i bought it while its under the warranty.
I have always had the fluid changed and had a series 1 C3 with over 120km on it with a gearbox that was fine.
thanks
