I am not in US now. I cannot get it here...I am not gonna lug it in my luggaged and then...I will be in US in 3 months

So buy in local BMW a BMW fluid.
for differentials in BMW 2007 X5 E70Xdrive I am thinking of using Motul Gear 300 75W90...
would it be fine for the BMW X5 2007 ?

As for Transfer Box and using the Motul Multi DCTF...I am still in the dark....I just saw someone posting in 335i xdrive hread it was approved...

what does it mean APPROVED? by BMW? or as per chart on Motul site?

The BMW open diffs are not that picky; and synthetic 75W-90 gear oil will work fine.
