Can anyone advise me of a dealer who stocks 1 litre bottles of Castrol Syntrax Long Life 75W-90 (formerly SAF-XO), preferably in Australia. I have tried 2 BMW and 6 Castrol dealers unsuccessfully. Thank you.

Any reason it has to be Castrol? There are many good synthetic gear oils such as Amsoil, Mobil 1, Royal Purple, Redline, Valvoline, etc. Most offer limited-slip versions, usually with the letters "LS" in the name.

Not really. I have got into the habit of using all Castrol products. Cheers.
