Hi folks,

I will be running an E36 318Ti compact as a trackday/competition toy. She has been stood for about four years and only recently become road worthy.

I plan to do an engine oil change and was wondering what others use/recommend.

I also want to check/change the gearbox and diff oil so any thoughts on this would be helpful too.
