    So what's the consensus here? GM syncromesh with friction modifier or Redline MT? I swapped my fluid a little while ago but can't remember what I switched to. All I know is I still get an occasional grind and the pedal feel isn't great during the winter. Looking to find something that won't have the 1-2 grind and will be better in the winter

    Great find Dzenno, 2 qrts are on their way and should be here this weekend.The 1-2 shift at the dragstrip was really bad for me, the only way to get into 2nd was to baby it (granny shifting) not double clutching like you should. I will be re-visiting the drag strip next week and let you guys know how it does.

    I suggest changing the fluids twice to get all of the old stuff out.

    I was still having a few 1/2 problems after my first change to Royal Purple Syncro. Changed it a 2nd time a few hundred miles later and it's been perfect since.

    I wanted to update everyone on my experience with this. First of all I am not a mechanic and don't consider myself knowledgable on this stuff like some of you guys out there. However, I have been driving manual transmission cars for 23 years. I had used GM syncromesh in my 2006 Acura TL 6MT and was extremely satisfied over the stock transmission fluid. My short experience (only drove it about 50 miles so far) with this oil is very similar. Gear changes are very smooth. The notchy feel from 1st to 2nd gear is 100% improved. I also have UUC short shifter and DSSR in my car. Let me put it this way, If someone took my car and replaced the factory oil with the redline and didn't tell me anything about it, I feel like I would still notice the difference. Thanks Dzenno for your receommendation.

    I'm yet to grind or get locked out on a WOT/NLS shift with this gear oil. It is literally night and day.

    I used GM syncromesh in my 06 ACURA TL and loved it. I have no experience with it on my 335i. So far per my experience with Redline is it takes sometime in the morning for it to be butter smooth but then once it is warmed up, it is great. I also haven't tried in a weather cooler than 70 degrees so far.

    Yea I think synchromesh might be the way to go but i'm waiting to hear from some of the guys that have run it in their 335i and in cold weather. I don't remember what fluid I have in there now but in winter it takes a bit to warm up and it didn't solve the 1-2 grind

    I was previously running GM synchromesh with Friction modifier, just switched to the Redline MT90 and it feels the same during normal driving. I just did some NLS's, and it feels marginally better. Honestly hard to tell a difference. I don't think you can go wrong with either fluid.

    Thanks for the info! How long were you running the GM and did you ever run it in cold temps? That's the only thing that is really making me not want to do the Redline. I will be driving every day and in winter it can get down to the 20's. With my current fluid (again can't remember what brand) it's not awful but does feel notchy with a spongy feeling pedal during winter until its warmed up

    I had the GMSM in over the past winter, granted we are talking about a Florida winter, but i did see temps get down to low 30* and it seemed fine to me. GMSM is pretty thin stuff.

    Also of note, i put in the Rogue Engineering transmission mounts last night and the trans feels much more solid. I haven't done any 1-2nd gear shifts yet, but i suspect that the mounts will help greatly in transmission shift during acceleration.

    Just FYI, my UUC black rubber mounts broke last weekend. Both of them literally split right across! Junk! Rogue makes the same type..

    Do you think it's from the climate up there?

    Maybe not to me, but to someone from Texas, it might as well be the North Pole.

    I just bought the UUC Black mounts from ECS but I haven't put them on yet. What other options are there besides Rouge for a non-through bolt mount?

    Also, what were you dong when they broke and do you have a picture of the failed mount?

    To be honest I have no idea how/when exactly they broke. Putting on a set of our own solid tranny/engine mounts soon to test out and see how they work out and affect daily drivability. Right now back on OEMs. Hard shifts may have caused them to break.

    What are they made of? I was just about to say you could always just make your own for small $$$.

    I believe we can use the m3 mounts, which are stiffer. I have the black UUC also, but haven't been under the car to check them in awhile... if they are broken I'm not feeling any difference. I'll definitely check them soon. I'm not using the cups, did you DZ?

    I've never had any difficulty with 1 to 2 shift... curious why the difference between cars. Not sure if mounts will make much difference as the gearshift is mounted to the tranny in the rear and will move with it.

    Ok I think I might try that stuff along with transmission mounts next time i'm in for maintenance stuff

    Edit: Whoops just read the rest of the posts... Don't think i'll do transmission mounts now
