I'm surprised you could use 90 grade oil and still engage gear! My 230k E28 Getrag box was sticky. Changed from 80 to 75 grade and then to ATF. Wonderful!! Yes at 230k it rattled but all Getrags tend to do that. There may be a solution, but check very carefully before spending money! The alloy gearbox casting acts like a sounding board. A small price to pay for a major improvement in the gearchange?
