Went to the parts desk at the local dealership to get the rear diff fluid for my 06 SL65. I was kinda surprised when the service manager came back with:
Castrol Syntrax 75W-140 Limited Slip
I was expecting some thing from AMG, or at least from Germany. Anyone else have experience with this fluid for our rear diff? I picked up 1.5 liters at the bargain basement price of $80
60 bucks per liter and still dont feel special enough?
BTW, oil and other fluids are simply re bottled products made by other major oil companies, sometimes special mixes per maker specs...
But no maker I am aware is large enough to make its own fluids...
