I've now got nearly 250,000kms on my '05 3.0d and have only made one slight top-up in the 75,000kms of my ownership. No evidence of a prior service.

I plan on changing the fluid, gasket, filter, bridge, jump and mechatronic seals and probably all the solenoids at some point - until then, I've decided to leave it alone, since it's working mostly)fine.
