That's what I was worried about... It would explain why I can't find a definite recommendation anywhere.

AFAIK, MTF-LT3 is the lighter of the two oils. Does anyone know who the original equipment manufacturer is for the oil? Castrol? Pentosin? Fuchs?

I think RedLine has a good product, but I'm not putting ATF in my manual transmission, no matter how good the ATF is.

I bought my car with 43k and I'm now at 48.7k, and I can feel a difference in the transmission already. Subtle but it's there. Just shameful BMW continues with this "lifetime fill" B.S. We love 'em and we hate 'em...
