Just bought some Ravenol MTF-2 (75w-80 GL-4) for the transmission in my 2017 MINI Cooper Clubman S ALL4 6-speed manual. It’s an Aisin GS6X60BA transmission that specs BMW MTF-LT2. Purchased from Blauparts. About $22/liter with tax and shipping.

I don’t see any post here about it so I thought I’d put up some pics.

Hope to swap the fluid next week.

It has been discussed in many threads on MTF.

If you can get a VOA that would be great to see if the formula and viscosity has changed.
