Another manual trans oil thread

Ive read every thread I can find on manual trans oil recommendations. Some say red line d6 or d4 ATF, Ammsoil MTF, and Royal Purple synchromesh MTF. The OEM is $30/L! What does everyone recommend? Are all those options safe for my 2011 mt?

Thanks

Id reccomend redline mtl. It removed the notchiness in my 6mt, basically felt like a new transmission. Smooth as butter. Id add that to the list of options.

$30 per liter for something that lasts 100k in every possible condition sounds like a steal compared to something thatís half the costs but lasts 1/4 as long amd more importantly may not feel as good.

MTF-3 OEM equivalent is Castrol SAF-XO. I've used both BMW MTF-3 and Castrol. Changed the trans juice 3 times at 100,000 mile intervals.
