    Im changing oil to 75w-80 redline mtl. But speaking some denmark guy (repairs them or something), bearings are noisy and input shaft bearing bit rubbish.

    Will see, i let you know.

    I just serviced my Sport (45k service) it's now got Red Line MTL in the gearbox, it's too soon to say if there is any improvement in the shift, the oil that came out looked perfectly clean with no visible bits of shrapnel so all must be well with the cogs.

    Yea i changed it, its better. But noise is still there.

    If it goes bad, i change another gearbox and repair old one with LSD...

    We got today over 70cm snow... Makes me thinking 4wd.

    After a few miles now with the Red Line there is a noticeable difference with the gear change especially from cold, it just feels a slicker shift now.

    It's nice to hear that, first time I heard Redline MTL recommend was when I had my Mk2 Golf GTi, the synchro mesh goes and sometimes using MTL can help reduce the symptoms.
