One question though: you said the dealer who was doing your 2k service said the didn't have any NA rear diff fluid anywhere? I didn't even know there were different kinds --geologically speaking. I find that strange. Wonder if you knew you would be getting it done there if you could have called ahead to have it ready for you.

In any case, I'm glad everything seemed to go so smoothly for you and your family.
Thanks Zero. That's what the service advisor told me and he said they tried to source it but it wasn't available even in Germany. Of course I don't know whether it is true or not. He did say that the North American cars have different differential oil. Availability? Weather? BS?
It just confounds me that a company like BMW couldn't get what you needed. I understand you have a NA car in Europe but come on. I think you got played a little. In any case, just have your BMW place back home ready and waiting with that super special fluid.
