The SLS system is specific for Pentosin 7.1 which is a non-synthetic. Pentosin no longer makes 7.1 but I believe there is another company making the 7.1. Do not use anything else!

Many BMW technicians these days are not familiar with vehicles of this vintage. Do some research and verify that what you have is compatible. If you put anything other than what is specified you run the risk of damaging the system.

Yup, Febi Bilstein makes the 7.1 green non-synthetic fluid.
