    If it was me I would have used the Castrol fully synth mentioned in the How2, plus some Molyslip gearbox grease. It did the trick in mine.

    Had the same problems myself.tried the lower oil quantity like yourself didn't work.done a bit of research and tried redline MTL oil from camskill it made the change a lot smoother on my f40. It's not cheap but worked for me.
