in their manual transmission? If so, where do you buy it? I read in Bimmer Magazine that this sometimes cures transmission problems. I have a 96 Z3 which sometimes (2-3 times per week) "pops" out of 1st gear when starting from a standstill. Unfortunatly, my car is out of warranty (97,000 miles).

Yep. Couldn't tell a difference. Your problem won't be fixed by a change in fluid, you need a new tranny- the 1st gear synchros are shot.
