: I am about to change my transmission fluid & final drive oil w/ red line fluids. I bought the Synthetic ATF version of Dexron-IIE for the tranny (manual). Is this right? I am also putting 80-140 in the final drive, sound about right? Anybody done this?

Many M5er's on the bmwm5.com board had problems with synthetic transmission fluids. They experienced difficulty in shifting and grinding, which disappeared after returning to standard. You may want to check that board for the posts.
