I also use the Vacuum extractor to do mine and I have 2 different oils to go with for 10K + service.
My cost is $40 for AMSOIL 5W-40 6qts and $11-15 for filter media ..
I now have DCT Fluid too.
The dealer wants $410 for DCT Transmission Service. Fluids are $188 alone. I beat that by $80+
Rockauto for the filter, $12.00 shipped to my door. Easy and best part is no under car needed!

That only $222 for labor? About 1hr 20min? No way ... the (vertical) pan has to come off plus full cleaning and sensor reset with diag box and fluid level adjustments at 40 or 70C to +-1mm etc not to mention all the r&r for the intake parts and all the associated stuff ... wow not too bad?

Vacuum extractor does not work for the DCTF through the dipstick funnel. It could only extract about 1.8L out.
Remove the under tray and unbolt the drain nut with a M14 allen key, another 3L will gush down.
Note: This is for the 1.6L 176.042 engine. 2.0L 176.044 uses slightly more DCTF thus expect to get more out from the tranny.
