Default Tiptronic fluid replacement question (filter/no filter?)

My 91 964 is nearing the 60k mile mark and is need of a fluid change.
The job looks straightforward enough from the various posts I've found. Couple new seals, lots of fluid...<<insert joke here>>

My question:
Should I replace the trans filter (requires dropping the pan, new seals, etc). And if so, should I use OEM or PORSCHE filters?
The car has been treated nicely it's entire life, so not sure if it's needed, but thought while I am making a mess...go all the way

Thanks in advance.

I would definitely change the filter. Generally if you go with Mann, Mahle, or Hengst you’ll be fine. Just do a drain and refill.

Pelican lists it as OEM ($77) v PORSCHE ($235)
Just making sure I'm not missing anything.

Thank you for the response.

I used one of those garden sprayers to pump and flush fluid per the workshop manual
