Recomended Oils?

Hi Guys,

This is my first post, and I am about to undertake my 80K KMs service for my e90 320i.

Can any recomended the relevant oils/fluids and specs for the following?

Engine Oil
Coolant
Brake Fluid
Power Steering
Transmission
Differential

I would rather get this info from here than go to an auto store and asking.

Any info would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Appreciate 0

Engine Oil--Amsoil European Formula 5W40
Coolant--BMW OEM
Brake Fluid--ATE Super Blue/Super Gold (Start with Blue and switch off per change, makes it easier to tell when you're done)
Power Steering--whatever. E46s used ATF in the power steering system, not sure about the E90s
Transmission--Redline or Royal Purple
Differential--Redline or Royal Purple

Thanks for that Geko...

I've managed to secure OEM coolant, however still shopping for the rest.

I think the transmission is an easy pick with the ATF.

How about anyone else in Australia that can recommend products available here?

Are you ordering that particular oil (European Formula) on line? Its not one I have seen in the stores unfortunately. I tend to go along the lines of the ideal that I change my oil so often it shouldnt matter but als wouldnt mind trying something new.
