Auto Transmission Fluid Lifeguard6 Alternatives?
Hi Guys,

Car is a 2007 335i Auto- Other then purchasing this at approx $50\Litre from BMW is there an alternative that you can have experience using? Or if there is any specific place to get the ZF transmission \ Lifeguard 6 fluid somewhere cheaper?

So far autopartsway online is selling it for $40 a litre and their alternatives which meet specs for Shell M-1375.4

Pentosin $80 for 5 L
and Redline $17.99 / Litre

Any suggestions on the alternatives or where to get Lifeguard6 in the GTA cheaper?

Do a search of Mercon SP made for Ford. Specified ATF in ZF transmission used by Ford.

Thanks - I forgot to mention the Mercon SP made from Ford. I'm going to try the Pentosin ATF1 as I saw a write up with a link to ZF's website with a PDF document showing compatible fluids with my specific ZF transmission.
