uhm...does anybody else have anything to say ? because from what i've learned, tranny fluid should never be mixed with gear oil.....
i'll ask some of the more experienced techs in my shop and then call GT and see what they say...

Yes E36 use ATF fluid, E30's were the ones to use normal Gear oil.
Although your diff still uses normal Gear oil so don't let them screw that up by putting in ATF.
