There's no pro's and con's here;
If you put anything other than Mercon V in a a4ld you will kill it.
The friction material used for the clutches require the specific friction modifiers in Mercon V.
There is no proper substitute on the market.
The A4LD does infact spec Mercon fluid (a.k.a. "Dex/Merc" nowadays).
You're thinking of the 4R44E/4R55E/5R44E/5R55E series transmissions (these are the ones that require Mercon V fluid)
