Need help with transmission Oil.....for 94 318i E36

Hi guys, thanks for the help in advance. I just want to know what kind of oil should I use for my transmission(manual). I'm going to have my car service and I'm thinking of having them check the transmission oil too. Thanks.

Redline Synthetic for AUTOMATIC transmissions. The automatic is very important. I repeat, Yes I know you have a manual, but get the redline Synthetic transmission fluid for AUTOMOATIC transmissions.

redline atf fluid or royal purple synchromesh fluid (not RP's atf, though). either are great. i go for whatever is sold closest to my house when i need it.

victorgallas is an unknown quantity at this point
Gear oil or atf.
Atf is the factory oil, is thinner, therefore easier for cold shifting.
Gear oil is good only if you race youre car constantly and you dont care for the transmission being hard to shift while cold.
Because e36 are not racecars from factory, i would suggest the red line atf. You will need two quarts, fill up till it overflows from the top plug.
