I also have half a bottle of Redline MTL fluid left, and 1/4 bottle of Royal Purple Synchromax.

The TC's between the xi and x-drive are different of course.

Which is the best for the xi TC within the above fluids?

X3 TCs use a chain E46 XI TCs use gears. That is why the OE fill for the NV124 was MT fluid.
There you go
