I've seen that too. I'm following the recomendations of my guy at Bavarian Autosports, and the recommendations of Mike Miller of Bimmer magazine, in using the MTL. I think their feeling is that the MTL is better long term than the D4.

On finding the stuff, you can buy it online at many places. BavAuto sells it, PelicanParts probably does, you can even buy it direct from Red Line. Google it and you'll find a distributor.
