Question R50 Cooper - Getrag 5spd - which gearbox oil please?!

Hi all,

I've a R50 Cooper, Getrag 5 spd 'box.

I need to change the gearbox oil, but have no clue as to what I should use.

I've searched high and low on forums, but too many answers and reasons to make head nor tail of.

What oil do I need to buy? Which oil makes the box silky smooth?

That's all I need to know really.

Many thanks in anticipation of your help.

Going to order Redline ATF D6 as this seems to be the stuff that matches BMW's specification for a 5speed Getrag on an R50 cooper.
