Ignore the transmission model. Dex3 is supposed to be dangerous to my tranny according to bentley but i have been using it for 3 years with no problems. Use any type of semi or fully synthetic transmission oil. Only the big boys have it and you cant go wrong. If unsure just use zf lifeguard. However this is very pricey, but you can basically double your oil change interval over dino oil.

Or just follow haolibird's suggestions. Royal Purple seems to be the aftermarket brand with the best track record.
