Hello Ron,

The VIN on my Z3 is LC13846 with a build date of 03/98. The tranny sticker is yellow and specifies MTF-LT1. As in your reference above, MTF-LT2 is interchangeable with MTF-LT1. My tranny according to the Bentley manual is a ZF S5D 310Z. The code on the left side of the bellhousing is BMW 1.222.7-1.9, .13 226. There are some numbers at the bottom of the bellhousing and these are: 0681824 HMW. I came across this ZF article, but cannot seem to cross reference my tranny:

This is a link to the Pentosin fluids guide. You will note that the MTF-LT2 or MTF is a GL4/5 gear oil.

I am not sure whether the Pentosin is equivalent to the Castrol BMW MTL-MT2.
