For anyone wanting confirmation from the horses mouth that the Audi/VW/Citroen/Peugeot oil is the same as the Esso LT 71141 (ZF now calling it LifeGuard 5) look at ZFs own site here (this took a lot of digging around!) http://www.zf.com/na/content/en/nort...ure_pc_us.html & click on the 'List of Lubricants TE-ML 11'.
Direct link to List of Lubricants TE-ML 11 http://www.zf.com/na/content/media/u..._11_en0700.pdf ,strangely that list isn't as upto date as the one on at www.tsgparts.net site (Tech info>Trans fluids>ZF Lube List).

This old TE-ML 11 lube list from 2004 shows that ZF used to list it as LT71141 http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&sou...3u6FL37RXNsOaQ

For those of us forced or want to use Esso LT 71141 that is.

Btw re UK prices, the 8.38/ltr I mentioned earlier doesn't include VAT. So it's 9.85/ltr , yes the Valvoline oil is cheaper (8/ltr) but not by a large margin as it is in the USA. Hence I've gone for the Esso oil.
