Does anyone know what OEM fluids are in a 2004 M3 six speed transmission and differential? I stopped by a local BMW with my VIN number; however, they did not know what to sell me. I am out of town on business (without the car can't check tags under car) and would like to change the fluids over the long weekend if I can figure out what to buy. I called two other BMWs today they were also no help. I want to stick with BMW fluids.

I did search and found many aftermarket brands but not BMW fluid info.

Any help would be appreciated.

the rear axle is definately worth sticking with the BMW part ending in 583 the one with the firction modifier in it ... by the way its 180$ for 3 bottles u need a little ov er 2 bottles
however i went with the redline standard transmission oil as it had given many poeple a positive result

Oil: Castrol TWS 10W-60. Even LiquiMoly is pretty good in our cars.
Radiator Fluid: Stick with the oem fluid, I found it to be cheaper at Carquest.
Differential: 3 bottles of SAD-JX + FM booster(Part# 83222282583)
Trans fluid: Take a look into redline oil.

Don't forget new o-rings as according (oil pan, diff, etc)
