If they are the same, I'll go with the cheaper ($32). I would think 0870 is 0870 no matter who bottles it. Or is this a false economy? Saving $30 for 60K miles of use. What say you?
I can't get any other options where I am so I used the updated OE BMW Power Divider Fluid from the dealer - DTF 1 part number 83222409710 - which supersedes the original TF 0870.
