Post 97 E39 523i - FLUIDS

Hey guys,

What are the recommended oil/coolant for this model car and what do you use in your car?

I'm talking about

- engine oil
- brake fluid
- transmission oil
- diff oil
- coolant.

I am looking to do a complete overhaul of the car and change everything, even the transmission fluid. (i don't believe the last mechanic put the correct life-time fluid in there after he rebuilt it)

Can you please post what type of oil/coolant (brands and part numbers would be great!) you prefer to use in your cars as well as your experiences and perhaps ratings.

This might be very useful for all users to use as a reference base.

Thanks guys!
