Which Manual Gearbox Oil

Decided to change the manual gearbox oil and wanted to know what everyone has used for renewal.

At present I have narrowed it down to three options:

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-69413-ca...gearboxes.aspx

http://www.redlineoil.com/product.aspx?pid=115&pcid=9

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-981-fuch...on-fluid.aspx#

From searching it seems the redline is popular just wondered if anyone had used the other two oils?

Yep, Fuchs in mine. It's apparently Opie's best seller for Beemer MTs...

I used the Redline in my Honda S2000 box. It was MUCH smoother when cold.

The OP listed ATF which is not correct although it 'is' compatible (ish)
