From Mike Miller's old school maintenance schedule:
You can get the Castrol SAF-XO from Land Rover dealers for ~$12L. Same oil as BMW OEM, at a price comparable to Redline.

Given how BMW is with warranty coverage, I am using the factory spec oil until the warranty is up. After that, I too will be perfectly happy to use Redline in the diff.
