    Hi Princess,
    Quoted from the Information manual page B5-3
    For the engine oil you need;
    5W-30 (API grade SG or higher). I used Magnatec 5W-30
    If your changing the oil filter too, you need 2.7l.
    If your only changing the oil you need 2.5l.

    Quoted from the service manual page F2-1
    Gearbox oil;
    Transmission gear oil SAE75W{{-}}90 or SAE75W{{-}}85 or SAE75W{{-}}80 (API grade GL3 or GL4) -90 or SAE75W-85 or SAE75W-80 (API grade GL3 or GL4)

    Total capacity approx. 2.1 - 2.25l
