    Default Gearbox Oil M32 Manual Transmission

    Hi. Going to change the oil in my gearbox (Vectra 1.9 cdti 100 hp 2008 plate). The car has driven 245 000 km, and Iíve found no record of any previous gearbox oil change.
    Living in Norway, the most recommended oil (Fuchs Titan Sintofluid 75W80) is hard to come by, and also very expensive. Are there anyone here with experience from using any other oil?
    Iíve read that the car needs GL-4 and my Haynes manual advises 75W90 viscosity. Have browsed through some alternatives, for example Castrol Transmax 75W90 and Castrol syntrans multivehicle 75W90. Also considering buying cheap fully synthetic oil from ęBiltemaĽ (Big swedish/Norwegian budget auto supply store) which is both GL-4 and GL-5 certified and has a 75W90 viscosity.
    Any recommendations?
    (Iím aware of the habit of overfilling the M32 with app. 2.5L for better effect)

    If the cheaper oils meet the specs then it should be ok and you should fill to nearly 3L which most gearbox rebuilders here in the UK recommend. I used Fuch Titanfluid in mine so cant recommend any alternatives.
