I go by the book and had it done with the 20,000 mile service.

It's part of the "full" Toyota service every 20k miles, make sure the dealer does it as not all of them are capable of reading correctly.

I don't think mine was changed at 20,000 service. I am not due another service until April which will take me to around 35k. Is this something that has to be changed on time or can it wait until the next service ?

Was there any printout what was performed at previous service?
Anyway, if it's not known it was done, i'd 1) change it. better safe then sorry. It may not fail, but it may reduce total mileage of diff due bad lubrication. If you plan to keep car/drive long enough probably you care about things like that too. 2) consider being extra anal all the future service visits to this dealer and inquire on all work done (or not done) in details. And ask, for what real reasons they are no doing their duty when ought to by procedures of vendor they are supposed to be dealer of.
P.S.
In case if you track your car too, i'd probably cut in half all oil (not just diff's) change intervals too.

Stiofana, I think you should not be worried. The BRZ manual recommends a change every 40K/4yrs, under normal driving. If you track it, then a severe schedule applies, which is 20K. Cheers!

Some manufacturers don't seem to change it ever and I think some of them may even be permanently sealed units. So I don't think it's anything to worry about to much. Same with the gearbox.
