On two years now, 120K miles, did a filter and fluid change, absolutely love it. Car shifts like silk, and I can't feel the upshifts anymore like I could prior to the change.
Right so BavAuto has LM TopTec 1200 but I can't see myself to get it just yet. I explained my reasoning here...

That being said, I have not gotten it yet. I did notice that the Valvoline Multi-ATF has the Texaco spec included in its recommendations.... we'll see though. Still leaning towards my reasoning.
