Genuine BMW SAF-XJ+FM 75W140 GL-5 gear oil for BMW M differentials with limited-slip. BMW part #83222282583.
This part is listed by BMW as BMW part number 83222282583 (83-22-2-282-583) and is described as Genuine BMW Differential Gear Oil, 500ml bottle, SAF-XJ+FM Booster for E46 M3, E90/E92/E93 M3, E82 1M, E60 M5, and E63 M6.
The "M" models with the factory M Variable limited slip differential (LSD) use this special gear oil. It is special as it includes BMW's specific "FM Booster", a friction modifier / booster that's formulated to assist in the LSD-effect of the M Variable diff. This is a 500ml (16.9 fluid ounce) bottle, perfect for topping off or filling up your factory M variable LSD.
This can also be used in the M Performance Differential offered for F22 2-series, F30 3-series, and F32 4-series. BMW said the M Performance Diff did not require any servicing thanks to "lifetime" fluid but if you track your car you will want to change the fluid.
