Interesting. Well it's almost half the viscosity of a real 75w90 like motul or amsoil. That's why we can't trust those numbers.

Ultimately, you want a GL4 fluid with a k visc of about 7.5 for this gearbox.

LT3 might be great in a very cold climate.

That's interesting... I told me dad it was thicker than the LT2 which didn't seem like a bad thing for a car like the M3 but it makes more sense that the LT3 used for the N52, N54 is thinner

They work really well!

Super convenient having all cars use the fluids... right until said fluids are discontinued.


You were correct. Car parts.com sent me Fuchs.

Likewise, and two different types. Remarkably awful order experience followed by an hour of India based tech support. Weeeeeee
