Question 560SL Transmission Fluid

Hey Guys,
I have a 1989 560SL. I just checked the Transmission dipstick and it looks like i need to add some. I am struggling to find out what the correct one is to put in. I have called 3 german repair shops and got 3 separate answers, "Dextron 3"," Mobile 1", and "Redline". Can someone help me out ???????? Thanks !

The EGV107 has a fluid link.
I fill mine with 7 quarts of Dexmerc 3

For ATF I usually use MB products, might he bit more expensive that generic equivalents but then again how often you change it. Else what PanzerPuff wrote does the job too.
