I'll do the vanos filter myself.

What tranny fluid is the best for the E46 M3 and what's the best diff fluid for no noise etc

What does BMW use and would that be the way to go?
Tranny: Can't get oem now but Pentosin MTF2 is the closest to oem you can get. Im currently using Amsoil MTF myself.
Diff: Castrol SAF-XJ +FM is the best for diff.
