Picked this up from the US forum:

My car is within the VIN models identified but nothing in my service book about this. Only recall my Treg has had was for the seatbelt in 08/04.

Anyone aware of this recall?

Its an interesting one. Unless the US models use different oil then I assume it effects the UK models too
Just a thought....the Vortex thread seems to suggest that the recall only applies to models with the optional locking rear diff - so maybe cars without the locking diff don't need the oil replacing?

Not sure if it was this or not, but my Touareg was in the dealers last December for some engine work when I received a phone call about an oil leak from the rear diff. Had to wait several days for rplacement diff from Germany. Yes, it was the optional locking diff.
