How much are you paying dealer for transmission fluid change

Hi all Iím getting ready to have my first transmission service done at 1,500 miles just for preventative maintenance sake on my A8 transmission.

Dealer wants $450 for this service which seems on the high side so wanted to see if this was the norm before scheduling.

Also what should a rear dif service cost from a dealer?

Thanks

That seems extremely high. I was going to say $150-$200 max. You figure an hour of labor and then actual fluid costs.

That sounds like the price of a triple flush, not a single drain and fill. Crazy

The fluid is expensive! I bought 3 quarts when I did my convertor and it was like $28 a quart!
