335D Fluids

I'm looking to do a once over on my 335D. I want to do my power steering, coolant, brake fluid, transmission, and rear diff fluid. My car has 76K miles and I figured this should be a good time to do all this work.

I would like to know if there is a good place to buy all of the OEM fluid at a good price? For the transmission is there a filter I need to buy as well?

Please let me know if there is anything else I should be doing at the same time.

thectsc.com for ATF/Pain change kit.

Coolant, Brake fluid, just buy OEM. PS fluid is probably ATF. Rear Diff? OEM? I dunno.

Nice BMW, real nice to fuse the oil filter and oil pan for the transmission together.

I think ecstuning had some good packages. This was for my VW though but I'm sure they have BMW also

Rear diff is 75w-140 full synthetic preferred with friction modifier. I think it takes 2.2qts.

I have the Quaife LSD. The installer (VAC Motorsports) told me to change the diff fluid every 35-50k miles, depending on the type of driving. I'm thinking about getting the VAC - Finned Differential Cover to make that process easier. Pretty pricey though.

WorldPac who is owned by Car Quest (the auto parts company) sells all the OEM supplier brands for foreign cars. Look up and see if you have a local WorldPac distributor in your area and give them a call.

I notice the gearbox oil is for those "without limited slip." Wonder if they have one for "with LSD?"

They have an LS oil but that's for one with clutch plates:

"For plate type Limited Slip differentials use CRX LS 75w90 NT"

The one I bought would work for non plate types like Quaife, Wavetrac, etc.
