Locking rear diff comes with the supercharger.

I believe if you put it in "Snow" mode, you should see the lock icon on the infotainment screen.
Regarding the transmission fluid, the indy mechanic could be using Mercon SP instead of ZF Lifeguard 6 fluid. Use at your own risk, but all indications are that it is the same fluid.
I've done the transmission fluid a couple of times, and now have the steel pan (it was just slightly more than the plastic pan). You should know almost immediately if the fluid change was done correctly -- your shifts will be very smooth. I had a questionable change once, took it back, and they corrected it. I use the local Ford dealer for pretty much all service.
Also, watch for leaks the next day (puddles or drips the next day). When the steel pan was installed on mine, the drain plug seal was leaking. They fixed by using teflon tape around the threads and no problems since.
Also, I've found Miami British to have some pretty competitive pricing.

If its too good to be true....I called the indy shop to make an appointment just to find out the service is actually 1200. He was just going to do differentials for 560. I guess I will be doing this myself.
Since the car has 105K on it, I think I need to do a full flush. I know that 7 quarts that came with the kit is not enough. However, I am seeing conflicting information regarding capacity.
The DIY post I found here calls for 12 quarts:
However, the Manual from the FAQ section calls for 10 quarts. Any advice on flush vs drain and proper capacity will be appreciated
Another alternative is to perform a drain and fill. Drive for few miles, drain again, replace filter, and fill again. This isn’t quite the same as a flush, but pretty much replaces all the fluid. I am not a big advocate for trans cooler DIY flush method. Seems like an accident waiting to happen. I’ve done it before (never in the RR). It’s just as much work as draining and filling 2x. A bit more efficient on fluid... maybe.
Thanks Bill. Based on the posts I have read the flush is probably more desirable in my situation. Especially since I still have 2 years and about 30K left on my extended warranty.....still no feedback on the capacity? Anyone?
I show 9.9L (10.6 Quarts) in the service manual. I'd plan to have 12-14qts on hand. Since you will be flushing the trans fluid, you will probably want to run an extra bottle beyond the "predicted" Capacity of 10L. Then you will want to have some extra on-hand in case you end up pumping more than expected through the trans or spill some.
Remember, you will be filling via a very specific method at a fairly narrow temp range (have a infrared temp gun handy). There is no dipstick, you are basically filling till fluid begins to seep out of the fill port while the trans is at correct temp (30-50C).
