    Conflicting Fluid info

    Hi All,

    I had posted this in maintenance but wanted to call it out here to get more eyes on it - http://www.bmwz8.us/forum/problems-s...ance-5109.html ... always amazed at how much conflicting info comes from BMW dealers.

    So one dealer told me the rear diff is SAF-XO which is a 75W90 oil and another told me it is SAF-XJ which is 75W140... seems the forum has had insight into the fact that it is the former viscosity rating... any recent opinions?

    Thanks!

    Patrick

    The Red Line site (https://www.redlineoil.com/find-products-for-my-vehicle) calls for 75W140 GL-5 gear oil.The Liqui Moly site calls for Fully Synthetic Hypoid Gear Oil (GL5) LS SAE 75W-140.
