    This has been beaten to death. Check your owners manual or amsoil.com for weight recommendations.

    Otherwise the best oil I recommend is fresh oil!

    download it here, read it, probably you find a lot of new gimmicks
    http://www.e38.org/e32/

    10W-40 7,5 Liter

    brand does not matter so much, better change oil and filter in regular intervals.
    At the moment I have Chevron 10 W40 as I get it cheap from COSTCO.

    final drive:
    75W-90 1,9 Liter

    in case of LSD final drive
    75W-140 1.9 Liter
    Pentosin CHF 11s, total 3 liter in case of an iL with LAD
    brake fluid DOT 4
    coolant total 12,5 liter

    not a single E32 engine needs 0W-30.
    That maybe applicable for the E39 series.

    Ya tranny. Super expensive though. I heard you only need that if you have self leveling suspension. Otherwise regular Dex3 is fine
