I have a 1973 Bavaria 4spd, and the transmission seems stiffer than it should be to shift. Would a simple oil change do the trick, maybe synthetic oil? Or could it be something more complicated. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You WILL notice the difference. It has done wonders for my tranny, and The positive feedback that I get from many of the folks who selll the stuff (Including BMW parts guys) has gone a long way in convincing me never to use anything but.

<i>: Yes, Redline is a good suggestion. You might also check to make sure your hydraulics are working properly. I've seen master/slave cylinders slowly fail and make it difficult to shift. This said not knowing if the stiffness in your tranny is just while engaging gears or all the time.<p>Dan<br></i>
