Red Line 75W90 is a full synthetic high-performance gear oil that is an excellent substitute for expensive factory fluid and an upgrade over off-the-shelf economy fluid. Red Line thoroughly evaluates the manufacturer's recommendations and only makes a fluid recommendation if their own product meets or exceeds the original specification. In many cases the Red Line synthetic will outperform the factory supplied fluids. We've been using Red Line Oil in our BMWs since we opened in 1994 and it remains our best selling BMW differential fluid. 75/90 is the weight most commonly used in BMW differentials since the 1960s, including the factory clutch-type limited-slip diffs (exceptions being M3/M5/M6 cars since 2001). We use 75W90 in nearly all BMW chassis and the custom differentials that we sell. It's great for the street where the polyol-ester base has natural lubricity and friction modifiers lead to smoother and quieter operation with lower operating temps than the factory fluid. We also use it in some track cars that don't already use the more aggressive 75/90NS fluid (without friction modifiers).

Recommended or exceeds specifications for API GL-5, GL-6, MT-1, MIL-L-2105E, SAE J2360, and Chrysler spec MS-9763. Matches the specifications for the factory BMW SAF-XO diff fluid (#07512293972).

We have been using RedLine Oil in our street cars and race cars for years. Hands-down, it is the Number One brand of high performance lubricant for BMWs. Red Line 10W60 high performance all-synthetic engine oil / motor oil. This specific grade/weight oil is commonly used on many of the newer "M" model engines, including the 2001-2006 E46 M3 (S54 engine), 2000-2003 E39 M5 (S62 engine), 2006+ M5 and M6 V10 (S85 engine) as well as 2008+ M3 V8 (S65 engine).

Finally, there is an alternative to the Castrol TWS BMW oil! And it's made by Red Line -- a trusted name in high performance oil, makers of some of the highest quality full synthetic motor and gear oils available. Red Line has been using this oil in non-US markets for years. They are confident it offers the same great protection as the Castrol TWS 10W60 oil you may have used previously. This oil is sold by the quart, so be sure to purchase enough for your oil change (usually 7 or 8 quarts).

Red Line 70W/80W GL-4 MTL gear oil (SAE 5W30/10W30 engine oil viscosity) designed for use in BMW manual transmissions. Provides excellent protection of gears and synchronizers and its balanced slipperiness provides a perfect coefficient of friction, allowing easier shifting. The MTL can be used as a replacement for the factory MTF or MTF-LT2 used by BMW. Add MTL to older BMWs that have become tough to shift will restore shift smoothness. Many experts agree that this is best lubricant to use in BMW manual transmissions. Sold by the quart.

This liquid product can be used to provide rust and corrosion protection in plain water for racing engines, which provides much better heat transfer properties than glycol-based antifreeze. Or it can be added to new or used antifreeze to improve the heat transfer of ethylene and propylene glycol systems. Designed for modern aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass, and bronze systems.

Red Line thoroughly evaluates the manufacturer's recommendations and only makes a fluid recommendation if their own product meets or exceeds the original specification. In many cases the Red Line synthetic will outperform the factory supplied fluids. We've been using Red Line Oil in our BMWs since we opened in 1994 and it remains our best selling BMW differential fluid. 75/140 is a specialized weight used for BMW M3, M5, and M6 models with the M Variable limited slip diff (all M models since 2001). Red Line fluid is used in nearly all E46 M3, E92 M3, E60 M5 we service as well as the custom differentials that we sell. It's great for the street where the polyol-ester base has natural lubricity and friction modifiers lead to smoother and quieter operation with lower operating temps than the factory fluid. We also use it in the track cars we build and prep. It may also be used in other specialized situations where a regular 75/90 will be too thin at elevated temperatures and your diff builder has approved a heavier weight oil.

Recommended for API GL-5, GL-6, MT-1, MIL-L-2105E, and SAE J2360. An alternative to the very expensive factory BMW SAF-XJ+FM diff fluid (#83222282583).

We have been using Red Line Oil in our street cars and race cars for years. Hands-down, it is the Number One brand of high performance lubricant for BMWs. We put Red Line Oil in our 80,000 mile street M3 and noticed smoother shifts, especially on 1-2 and 2-3 shifts. Also, our short shift kit is less notchy! For our E46 M3 racecars we used RedLine in the transmission and diff. Some of our races can go as along as 6 hours and we're happy report outstanding results. To clear up any confusion this package is what we recommend for the E46 M3. Not only do we not believe in 'lifetime' fluids, we believe that Red Line fluid will give you smoother shifts and as good or better protection for your transmission and diff internals than the factory fluids (factory fluid is also not available in a quart-sized container - we've tried).This package includes two quarts of ATF D4 and two quarts of 75/140.
