Google Mike Miller's Old School BMW Maintenance Schedule. He explains the difference between the two fluids quite well. I was going to copy and paste that section but since it is copyrighted I won't.

In short he says if you have a limited slip diff you need to use 75W-90. If you have a open diff you can use either 75W-90 or 75W-90NS.
