Manual Transmission Gearbox Oil?

I am looking for input in terms of replacing my "lifetime" manual transmission gearbox oil. I have a 2011 e90 335i. Want something that is heat. Resistent and very smooth. I understand that even BMW has multiple oil options.

What should I be using?

Thanks,

D

OEM or REDLINE

I purchased the 5L jug from Tischer @ 50k -- saved the remaining 2plus liters and changed again at 100k. It has served me well. I have run MTL and 75W90 at a 50/50 mix in other German MT and it worked well -- although change intervals were at 30k.
.
I think in either case -- if you want to have smooth shifting past 100k -- change it every 50k with OEM or 30k with RL -- check the RedLINE site and they will recommend ATF for your MT. Due to warranty -- I choose OEM.
.
I do currently have Redline in the differential and plan to change every 2 yrs.
Redline in the engine at OCI of 5k -- so I am a freak.
