Still, it makes me doubt that using a VW/Audi spec oil will cause premature transmission failure.

Honestly, I didn't know all of this when I bought the MT-90. Likely I will change back to the Porsche fluid if I change it again, but in the mean time there are much more pressing maintenance issues on this 22 year old car... and I am satisfied that the MT-90 isn't likely to cause transmission failure.
So long as your feels tell you you're satiafied, you should be good. Keep up that imagination.

Me? 99% of the time I follow the advice of JFP (and a few others who do more than read...). You blaze your own trail and keep us posted on how that works out for you.
