There is a fill tube with a red safety cap on it that is located on the side of the transmission closest to the front of the car. It is just above the lip where the pan is located. Note that there is not any dipstick with these transmissions.. for whatever reason VW decided that it was not important to check the fluid level.

the reason for the no dipstick is because like most of audis systems they are all pressurized units. The transmission house is not meant to be opened unless checking fluid levels or refilling it. You will need to take your car to a vw specialist to have your trany fluid filled. This is because for proper level checks the car needs to be running and in gear and moving to get the right level checked and filled properly. Which means it requires a hoist and in order to fill the trany it requires a special pump to pump it into the transmission. This is a job best suited by the vw dealer they will provide you with proper fluids and do the job right the first time.
