Another bad story

Motorwerks of Barrington just did the 1200 on my VO and they put in Part Number 83 22 0 309 031, ie LT-2,(despite my warning re correct fluid being an issue on the internet). They now say that BMW stance is that the "correct fluid is the LT-3, but that LT-2 is "OK" as well! They claim that the part number I gave 83 22 2 156 969 "does not exist in BMW parts catalogue. They said they would put anything I like in it if I so choose (they are also a Porsche dealer, so presumably have the equivalent to LT-5 in stock for the PDK...) Any thought on what I should do?
