Default How much should it cost to change the MT oil?

I'm bringing the car in for the 15k service (and to fix my power side view mirrors) and got the idea in my head from these boards to consider getting my manual tranmission oil changed. From what I've heard it's best to go with whatever dino stuff the dealership uses... So I called Gillman SW up to ask about the MT oil change and he quoted me for $100. And he kept insisting on calling it the a differential oil change?

Anyway, is this in any way a reasonable cost?

Also, is the fuel additive and oil additive crap they throw in for the 15k service worth it? (I'm thinking... no.)

I got JUST my transmission oil changed for $55, so, if I had done both transmission and rear diff, it would have been $100-something.

I thought you need to change Transmission oil every 30K instead of 15K?

The service manual suggests 30k, but people have been posting that if you wait for 30k miles you will get a thick sludge instead of worn oil.

Yeah, and in addition, I learned to drive stick on my car, so I didn't want to drive around with so much metal in my gearbox.

Shifting is smoother now
