Tranny and Diff oil

I'm just wondering what you guys use as a tranny and diff oil.

I hear redline MTL is great for tranny. Has anyone tried it?
I hear redline 75w 90 oil is also good for diff..

Any opinions?

I use redline stuff... 75w90 for the rear diff and ATL since that's what BMW wants you to use even in a manual car.
