1999 996 Tiptronic Slipping

Transmission and Clutch

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 1999; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 53K;

My Tiptronic is slipping between 3rd and 4th and 4th and 5th gears. The engine revs slightly when advancing but otherwise runs normally. I had the local dealer check the fluid that they said was very low and dirty. They changed fluid and filter for $660 and the problem still exists. The good news they didn't find any metal fragments in the filter. They said they had never heard of this problem in the past and made it sound like it is impossible to check the fluid myself. They stated the only other option is to replace the transmission for about $10K. Does this sound correct to you and do you have any suggestions?
