'no need' means it probably won't blow up if you don't change it, but to maintain anything properly its not possible to leave oil in for years on end. It can only do good to change it. Knowing how it has improved the gearbox feel, i'm sure the diff is happy too.

Officially neither gearbox nor diff ever need any new oil, but i'm old fashioned, and kevin bird reckoned 30k would be a good time to change the diff oil, my quaife has done 32k, so for 7 quid / 1 litre of oil it seemed worth doing in my book.

No noise whatsoever so far. Slotted are usually more noisy anyway AFAIK.
