    Where to Buy Red Line Fluids

    Would value any advice / recommendations on where to purchase Red Line fluids in DC metro area, ideally in / near Bethesda, Rockville, southern Silver Spring, Langley Park, College Park. Also need a heater/AC fan speed button (2001 540) and would like to avoid the $50+ cost various BMW dealer parts departments are asking (apparently for ALL heater/AC panel buttons in one kit).

    Many thanks...

    Call OG Racing. Generally you will have it the next day via UPS if you call early enough.

    Best place to buy parts is from Tischer. 20% off list with CCA membership.

    I order my oil from the cheapest online supplier I can find - I went with SafeRacer a few months ago.

    Otherwise, you can look up a dealer.

    Best prices I've found are at www.myoilshop.com . I see they have a discount going on right now.

    It looks like they are the same listed prices as OG Racing.
    It looks like everyone is $8.95 for 75W90.

    OG. But I hope you're not planning on putting it in your tranny or diff.

    I used Redline in my tranny and diff and never had any problems. Got rid of the car with 237k miles on it. Never had any issues with Redline in the tranny or diff when the car was trcked etc. Changed it out every year when car was tracked and every 2 yrs when it wasnt.

    Thumbs up

    I was surprised to find Redline fluids at the Advance auto parts here in Lexington Park, Maryland. I bought every bottle they had on the shelf and ordered some more. The rest arrived to the store the next day. I used the products on the tranny and differentials of my 1992 325i sedan as well as my 1995 ///M3 coupe. I felt a difference immediately in the shifting of both vehicles. The winter performance seems particularly enhanced.

    I forgot to mention; as I recall the Redline fluid at Advance Auto cost the same or less than what Bavauto was charging and there were NO shipping charges involved. I didn't even have to pay until I picked up the order!

    Advance Autoparts

    in Gaithersburg had Redline Fluids as recent as three months ago (when I was last in the store). Check on-line or call the store closest to your residence.

    Thank you all for your help. Nick, if you don't use Redline, what DO you use? Thanks.
