    opinions on redline oil

    Did anyone try this oil ? Opinions please.

    There are a bunch of technical reports on oils here, and Redline is not a recommended oil for our cars, though I think a couple of people have used it in the diff.

    I'd stick to Castrol TWS 10-60 which is what our engine was designed to work with.

    I use redline for the transmission and diff; I have for years on my other BMWs and the have gotten very good results (very little metal residue). For the s62, I'm with the rest only Castrol TWS 10-60!!!
