    So since it's colder where I am I picked up Amsoil Synchromesh MTF, which is similar viscosity to the GM Synchromesh and Redline MTL fluids. Putting it in as I write this so I'll give an update later tonight. Was going to mix 50/50 MTF and MTG but figured for the poor weather (3 degrees Celsius today) I should just run straight MTF.

    Took her for a drive and initial impressions vs. Redline D6 (2000km on it) are that it is MUCH LESS notchy then before. Second gear seems so just slide in. Haven't attempted a WOT 1st to 2nd yet because of the rain but so far I'm happy.

Just have to replace the one motor mount at some point.
    You dont perhaps have the part numbers for the M3 bushings? both the trans and rear subframe?
    And was it a direct replacement on the 1er?

    I was gonna grab some Red Line MT-90 at NAPA tomorrow, want me to pick some up for you? Then do fluid change at my place?

    This guy says it took about 2.5 quarts so I bought 3 to be safe.

    Possibly because he used 100metres of nylon tubing and spilt loads down the side of the tranny. No harm in playing it safe though Click here to enlarge

    I'm doing mine this weekend hopefully. I tried the UUC cocktail (Redline 75W140NS and D4 mix) to reduce the flywheel chatter and now the 1st to 2nd shift is horrible. I did the fluid change at the same time as the clutch change and my tranny was on a bench and 2 quarts was enough that time.

    LOL! I couldn't find any local so I didn't want to run out...If there was some available close to me I would have just picked up 2.

    HPA has the rear subframe bushings and they also rent the bushing tool. The only catch is two of them go in from the top so you have to drop the rear subframe almost completely. Makes it a good time to do LSD and brake lines since they all get disconnected.

    You forgot to mention that those transmission mounts are actually for an E46 M3 and not an E9x M3. I believe the E9x M3 transmission mounts are a different shape and are not compatible. Did you need to buy replacement nuts? I didn't order them so hopefully it's ok to just reuse the original ones.

    I bought a gallon of the MT-90 the other day as well as a pair of the E46 M3 transmission mounts so will be doing that very soon. With the BMWP SSK it's crazy notch in 1st and 2nd.

    Sorry yeah E46 M3 bushings for the trans. I don't remember if the nuts were required I pulled that info off of somebody elses DIY when I did mine. I think maybe 2 of the nuts might have been different. Figured it was cheap insurance to make sure I had the right parts.

    I just changed my transmission fluid to the Redline MT-90 yesterday. Car has 48,000kms and was running the original OEM fluid from the factory. It also has a BMWP SSK with the BMW gear knob. The fluid drained was a dark brown and of a watery consistency. There was quite a lot of metal particulates in the fluid itself. I used a $5 plastic petrol siphon pump thingy to fill it up but gave it a few small pumps before plugging the drain hole to help flush some more of the older fluid out. Probably ended up using just over half of my 1 gallon bottle.

    Ever since I purchased the car (already had the SSK) it's been quite notchy, requiring a lot of force to get the car into 1st, 2nd or reverse gears. Since the MT90, whilst it's still notchy it's definitely smoother. There's little to no grind and the force required to get it into gear is significantly less.

    Taking it out to the strip on Wednesday so we'll see how it goes. Also have a set of E46 M3 transmission mounts that should arrive within the next week.

    Thanks @dzenno@PTF for the tip.

    dzennoPTF. That's why I changed it. I had terrible second gear grind with factory fluid. My fluid coming out was black. I made the change to Millers stuff. Couldn't be happier. Occasional grind but that's more due to me being over zealous.

    If you ever want to try one more option for kicks check out Millers Oils.

    Anyone having issues with the MT-90 or smooth sailing? How bad (if at all) is the economy hit? I am about to swap fluids and am a bit concerned going from so thin to so thick, but I think I am ready to give it a try...

    I honestly haven't been monitoring fuel economy but the car drives great. I noticed it is a little bit harder to get into gear when the fluid is cold, but it's not bad a talk and heats up quick.

    changed mine out a month ago to the mt-90 and I must say in the cold weather its a little hard to get in gear but once the car is warm everything is fine . cant say it feels any better than stock fluid but I was a lucky one who's 2nd gear was not that bad.

    Colder weather will bring out a bit harder shifting when gear oil is cold. Once it warms up its back to normal. A PTF ssk is soon to be released as well that will considerably improve on the current SSK offerings out there. Should have it in for final testing on my car this week Click here to enlarge
