    The Vx oil is cheaper, but it's not as good.

    Read this How2, it's for a different engine than yours but with the same gearbox (I'm assuming that you have the 150 BHP engine with the 6-speed F40?). As you'll see, you'll need to replace the drain plug and preferably the fill plug as well.

    This oil is best, you'll need 3 bottles, and put in 2.4 litres.

    Also add in a tube of this, as it's excellent stuff:

    Remember, the point of changing the gearbox oil is to make gearchanges smoother and prolong the life of the gearbox. If you use cheap fluids then it's not so beneficial and you won't notice as much of an improvement.
