DCT Transmission fluid

I have a bit of a problem... My car is very low on transmission fluid.. Its a 2010 BMW 335i with a 7 speed Double Clutch Transmission.. Unfortunately our local BMW dealership in egypt doesnt have that oil and say it will take 2 months to order it !!

I need to know if anyone used anything other than the original BMW Transmission fluid on his DCT Transmission...

The original oil is DCTF-1 FFL-4 Part Number (83-22-0-440-214)

I know Pentosin and HKS make FFL-4 however we dont have that either !! I have read somewhere that Dexron VI could be used instead...

Does anyone know or has anyone tried any other oil..

Here are the oil's specs
