Best Trans Oil !

Read around the board, and you will find many opinions, on many different gear oils - including mine! - and this, oil of oils, has never been mentioned. What a shame!
It's a fully synth, GL4/5 75W-90, designed for gearboxes that also comprise a diff, just like our Subes! Whilst it's not quite new-gearbox-in-a-bottle, the baulky shift action into third that has dogged Subes for decades has improved vastly after doing 600 miles with this oil. I can just glide the stick forward from 4th and it will slide into 3rd, no crunch, no baulk, just pure sensory delight!
Apparently, it's hard to come by in the states, but if you can get a hold of some, go for it!

Funny thing was that I intended to go with a semi-synth from Castrol, but a friend of mine bought the "wrong" stuff for me. Before returning the TAF-X I decided to read around the 'net, including Castrol's own line.
Seems the Ford Sierra Cosworth guys like this oil too - and their 4wd is similar to ours...
