I wonder what BMW-approved aftermarket gear oil you folks use in LSD differentials? Where is it sold?

Dealer got 200 liter canisters with Castrol SAF-XJ but I am not going to give them a chance to change oil in my '89 535 diff :)

Thanks!

Get the Redline LSD diff fluid, I have some at the house if you want.

The best you can get... $10US/liter.

Was surprized by the fact that dealer uses 75W90 oil.....
It looks like domestic W140 grade oils are made only for the trucks.
