Is there a substitute for LA2634 ATF ?

Does anyone know if you can use another transmission fluid in place of the hard to find and expensive Shell LA2634? I've heard that Redline might make somethng that will work and I've written them, but, I'd like to hear from anyone who has had some personnal experience with this. Thanks!

Contact your local dealer. The stuff label 'BMW semi-synthetic ATF fluid' is in fact Shell LA 2634.

Disregard the quantity unless you have the E34 with the transmission described.
