Mein Auto: '99 Z3 2.8/'04 X5
Use hydraulic oil from kit P/N: 54 34 8 410

From Page 31

Actually that kit does not list any oil.
Or from here:
From Monolith:

The original PN for the Z3 oil is 54348410308. It is a kit that includes some oil and a set of screws.
The actual oil inside is Aral Vitamol ZHM (amber color).
If you want it cheaper you can buy the oil separately - it is the oil for the Z4 (only 250ml) PN 54340394395.
If you want it cheaper - it is the same hydraulic oil (for suspension and roofs) as used by Mercedes PN A000989910310 (1liter)**
There is an even cheaper [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]aftermarket[/COLOR][/COLOR] product (which may even be the same producer) - FEBI Bilstien #02615 ZH-M
