Exclamation CORRECT 1M Fluids List [Engine, Transmission, Differential]

NOTE:The intent of this thread is not to call-out or put on full blast any specific dealership/service dept. It help people avoid some of the past confusion with various service centers over what fluids to use in the 1M.

SAMPLE INVOICE(Incorrect Service):
A. Scope Check
B. Engine Oil Service (oil + filter)
C. Rear Differential Fluid
D. Multi-point Inspection
E. Loose Part(screw) in Rear Chasis Area

If you look at C, the part number for the fluid that went into the transmission or rear diff(unknown which one) is 83 22 0 406 941. This is BMW M3 MTF-LT-2 SAE75W-80 manual transmission fluid. This seems almost unthinkable. The mechanic had to ask for this by P/N the part is then scanned by the Part Dept. and then given to the mechanic to put into the car. In this case the only fluid that was changed was the engine oil. The inccorect transmission fluid was build out by mistake but never actually put into the car and the differential fluid service was totally forgotten and never done as well.

UPDATE: April 27th, 2015 New BMW oil for USA...

I also noticed the new oil is sold in liters, while the previous oil was sold in U.S. quarts (at least here in the United States). Just a heads up so you don't accidentally overfill.
