i use redline atf d4 in my getrag 240 (1991 318is). i bought it locally in toronto at www.garage16.ca. $9.99 per 1L bottle.

redline 75w90 is for the diff, not transmission.

Funny how everybody in the 2005 vintage of this thread now have e36's and e46's in their sigs. What do you think all the current e30 guys will be driving 7 years from now?

Royal Purple ATF is what I use. I quieted down a noisy reverse gear, so I'm happy.

And the diff fluid (max gear oil) took care of some weird diff creaking.
