In all my time of car ownership, I've never changed, or had changed in a service, gearbox oil.

Is this necessary? Why isn't it ever included in a service? How do you do it yourself?

I'm waiting for the sarcastic responses........................

Most manufactures say the oil lasts the life of the car. However a change doesn't hurt as it will prolong the life of the gearbox. It should still be checked and topped up reguarly though as seals do leak! I've seen some places suggesting a change every 40,000 miles or so but that was a peugeot forum. Your call really. I've done both of my alfas and they feel much smoother for it. What engine is in your GT
