I ordered that from them-- when it arrived, it was a different fluid (Fuchs).

I'll be returning it.

I went to grab some from there too and noticed the different part number, i believe you are not receiving the correct fluid

Sounds like Ravenol's fluid should be a good choice after the Pentosin is gone. It is GL-4 and the appropriate weight. I don't think there's any reason for anyone to panic, unless there's a rash of broken E46 M3 trans out there who didn't use the OE spec fluid every time.
