K04 DSG Service Interval

Just wanted to get some opinions on whether or not I should be changing my DSG fluid sooner than the recommended 40k interval since I am K04. I went K04 at around 30k miles and had the DSG fluid changed then too just because I figured it would be good to do so. I am closely approaching the 50k mark (almost at 48k right now) so I'm thinking of having the fluid changed again either at 50 or 60k miles. I know some people cut the service interval in half for heavily modified GTI's but every 20k seems like it could be a bit too soon. What do you guys think? Car is my DD BTW and I don't beat on it too often but it does see the occasional WOT 0-60 at a stoplight and on ramp blast when merging onto the highway.

It certainly couldn't hurt anything to change it a little early. I generally over maintain my car for peace of mind.

I see you're in Lombard, I do dsg services for chicago folks about half the cost of local dealers. PM me if you'd like if this is not something you're comfortable doing yourself.

I'll do your 40k service for much cheaper than a dealer.
