I just bought an early 09 C2S cab 2 weeks ago, which I think is in superb condition with 85k KMs.  Took it to local Porsche Center in Dubai for the 6 year clutch fluid change, they charged me AED 1306 ($355).  They used  000 043 305 13 (6 litres) Transmission oil.  The short drive home seemed to be much more responsive.

The part in the picture you gave the link to is a replacement transmission pan (Porsche part number 9G131202500) which retails in the US for $305  http://www.sunsetporscheparts.com/porsche/911/9g132102500/2009-year/carrera-trim/3-6l-h6-gas-engine/maintenance-and-lubrication-cat/transmission-components-scat/?part_name=trans-pan  The pan itself contains a filter element which is not serviced separately. It filters the clutch oil, the gear box oil is not filtered.

My car is 6 years old and want to replace the PDK clutch oil.

To replace the oil filter - the whole pan should be replaced.

 

Is this pan serves clutches compartment only?

Visually it looks to me like it covers the gearbox/cogs part - if it's true than gearbox/cogs oil also has to be changed.

 

So what's the situation with it?

The pan in the photo mounts on the bottom of the gear box, but contains the clutch oil filter (gear box is not filtered). Removing the pan does drain the gear box.  In order to change your clutch oil, you need access to a PIWIS unit during the process; it is not a simple drain and refill.

If above is true - replacing oil filter makes clutches oil replacement from 150$ to 150$+480$.

And this is materials only - labor costs will grow significantly too.

 

I'm really wondering how important is to replace the filter in a car that have reached 6 years but is very far from the recommended 60,000 miles mark...

Like the Tiptronic before it, the PDK can benefit from early service.  The clutch oil becomes fouled with solid debris from the wet clutch packs, which the filter removes.  And like any filter, the more it filters out, the less it flows.

So to get PDK clutches oil filter replaced - there is a need it to replace a pan of the gearbox - which leads to replacing gearbox oil too - correct?

 

is this ^ ^ ^ ^ correct?

my experience with pdk clutch oil replacment. The clutch oil that came out of my C2S looked like new! 40k kms. as our moderators have said the piwis is necessary so no diy on this one. since the clutch oil looked new i would say that there is actually minimal wear on the wet clutches after 40k. these things are robust! the filter is not part of the maintenenace requirement. i also had the gearbox oil replaced and it too looked like new. all for peace of mind. after the change there seemed to be a different feel to the pdk. though responsive there were a bit of jerks. i asked the dealer to recheck teh level and sure enough the level was low and about 400ml had to be added. everytyhing was fine after..

Thanks a lot for the info.

I didn't do it yet - my dealer (the only 1 in the country) said to me that same oil should be used for both gearbox and clutches.

Since this contradicts all information that we know - obviously they don't know what they're doing and instead of good it will do only damage.

I plan to visit them and review together the info they have.
