Bleed the clutch when you change the box oil - trust me, it’ll help as that fluid in the clutch circuit will have never been changed since it was filled at the factory! Clutch drag is one of the biggest killers in these gearboxes.
Oh and redline mtl, or redline mt90 is THE best oil for these boxes. 👍🏻
Yes, so I've been hearing. Bought a couple bottle of Red Line MTL 75W80 GL-4 for the change.

Pretty much joined here so that I could speak to you about this when the time comes to do something about it, ha ha.

In reply to your gearbox issue I have a similar issue in 4th crunching, do you or anyone here know someone who can do refurb's that aren't a total rip off at £400+
NorthloopCup, as I quoted above, is as far as I can tell, the goto guy for these gearboxes. And the main reason I signed on here.

Is £400 a rip off? My Z3 Getrag box cost £650 to refurb when the main bearing began to go.
If all they need are synchros on 3rd and 4th gear, I can sort those out for £280 including parts. It’s extremely rare to see them requiring anything else tbh. That doesn’t cover the cost of removing and refitting the box though. You’d have to bring me the box once it’s out.

Yeah or mt90 if you plan on giving it a good hiding on track mate. You’ll not go wrong with either of those oils!
Very kind of you to say - cheers, although you’ll find there’s a whole host of helpful people on here ready and willing to help out with advice on anything from cars to how to wipe your bum properly! 😂😂 Trust, me there’s a thread on here all about it!! Lol

Ha ha. Fold or scrunch?

Yeah, wasn't so much for the advice part. Just thinking I'd get you to do it. I'll see how it gets on with the fluid change first. And maybe try my first track day next year. See how it survives.

Oh it’s far more involved than that buddy! It’s a CS gold thread - trust me you’ll see it and understand! 😂

Yeah sounds like a plan mate, just don’t let it crunch for too long if it does - that’s where catastrophic damage occurs.

Well, I don't plan to drive this car much. A few hundred miles a month max, plus a couple track days a year. That's the plan. It is very minor just now, and only happens when changing higher in the rev range. Hopefully the quality oil goes someway to helping.

Was planning on seeing how it does around Knockhill next year, and then seeing where we are. Probably be looking to get it done around then.

Great i'll be in touch when I'm going to remove it? Don't have the tools to do the gearbox internals as I'm a bit agricultural haha.
