What oil for X3 Transfer case and diffs?


I have been a longtime reader but didnt post much and had to renew my registration

I have E83 2006 X3 3.0l Diesel 6s AUTO. It just ticked over 100,000kms. Ive had the car 2 yrs and had 80000kms when i got it. The previous owner towed a 1 horse float with it and i now use it for a 1.1 ton boat.
Id like to change the oils that never get looked at

Ive been reading up on changing oils in the auto and tranferr case. Ive narrowed down the Transmission oil and will go with castrol transmax multi-vehicle.

I need recommendations for what Transfer case oil to use - ive read i need only .6Ltr

Also would like to know what diff oils others have used and if the rear is A LSD?
