I used oem mtl2 from the dealer, they usually carry 5 liter bottle, but if you take a 3.5 liter bottle, they will provide with oil for $40.00 some buck!

yeah ive been hearing great stuff about the rp maybe ill try this out so does the smg and manual transmission take the same fluid
If they use the same OEM oil then you can use the RP Synchromax.
Mine is an SMG.

Before it would often click or 'thunk' during gear changes - now it feels
buttery smooth. I have 75K miles and changed the oil out
while doing my normal engine oil change.
