          When I replaced mine in March, Oilman (opieoils) recommended:

          http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-981-fuch...ion-fluid.aspx

          Much smoother gear change when cold as well using that.

              Yeah, there are quite a few posts on here about it. I read them all when looking for information about what oil to use.

              The below is from the thread where the bloke blew his gearbox up just after he changed his own oil

                Standard box will be filled with DextronIII which is also used for the power steering system, if you are just driving day to day it will do the job.

                If you like a bit of spirted driving etc I would put in something like the following.

                  I asked them about the 75-90, and they said the 75-80 would be fine when I did mine.
