Default M3 Diff Oil Deal

As many of you have taken advantage of the offer we did on the Castrol Syntrax Limited Slip and Redline Friction Modifier, we've started a similar offer. It's not quite the same price as before, the prices have gone up, but it's a long term one - it's expiry date is in a year's time. If you want to take advantage, use the code CUTTERSDIFF in your basket and it will take the discount off. As of today, it's 34.56 plus the postage for two bottles of the Castrol oil and one of the Redline if you use the code. As it's a long term offer, the price is likely to be more than that in a years time.

BMW don't give out much information, but from what I can see, an E92 will need 1.1-1.2L.

Cheers

From what we've been told, it does a very good job of it.

Typical, ordered mine a few weeks ago before discount!

However i will vouch for this product, work perfectly on my 'grinding' diff.

No nasty noises on cornering now.

I have just ordered the 3 bottles of the BMW FM stuff and im told its now over 100 quid, so this looks like a cracking deal,

BUT this quote is taken from OPIE page regarding the Redline FM Additive

"so add only enough to eliminate the chatter and avoid making the plates or clutches too slippery"

How do we know how much or how little to use???? I would be cr4ping myself that ive put to much in?????????

I would rather buy from Opie than pay the robbin stealers for sure!

There is a ratio on the back of the bottle.There is a thread on here somewhere all about it.

If I remember correctly works out at 1/2 a bottle

According to the bottle, add a quarter of it at a time and see how the diff goes. Some people had said they use the whole bottle, but my mate did that in his TVR and it ended up just spinning one wheel when he put his foot down. I think about half a bottle is right for an M3

Thanks for the order. You can use Fed Ex via the site though. When you are logged in and what you need is in your basket, go through to the next bit and there is an option for the Yodel and Fedex standard and priority services.

Cheers
