Getrag 265 oil type Elite S2 box

Recommended Posts

What oil should I use in the Getrag 265?  I refreshed it with EP80 going back to the days where all my parents’ cars worked perfectly with Ep oil . Fast forward to 2019 using  EP80 in a Getrag is a disaster , requiring more effort to select gears even when warmed up. 

some forums recommend engine oil , hypoy,  ATF and BMW forums recommending  Redline MT.... all for the same gearbox

If youre running a Getrag 265  is appreciate your view on the oil you are using

The owners manual says 20/50. I have filled a millers in. Warm it is Great but on cold condition 2.gear is hard to get. Before was obviously something different in which felt great in all conditions but unfortunately we don’t know, what it was.
