QUANTITY 2 QUARTS: Valvoline 80W90 Synthetic Blend Gear Oil
QUANTITY 5 QUARTS: AUTOMATIC TRANS, Castrol Import Synthetic Transmission Fluid *DO NOT USE NEW ATF FROM DEALER!!!! It is too thin for our cars!!!
QUANTITY 3 QUARTS: MANUAL TRANS, 10W30 Motor oil -OR- HONDA M/T Fluid -OR- Valvoline Synchromesh Fluid
QUANTITY 2 GALLONS: 50/50 Water/Coolant mix of your choice. NOTE: OEM Dealer Type2 Blue Coolant comes pre-mixed. BMW blue coolant is a suitable replacement and comes concentrated.

Still more to come!

That's the only reason I'm asking. Did something change in Honda ATF?
Dealer ATF changed from Z1 to DW-1 and is much thinner in viscosity but the dealer will tell you that it's all the same, they just renamed it. hgeez:
They no longer have Z1, it's been discontinued.

Yeah, I figured that out quite a while ago after doing some research since no one had answered.

I've also already been running DW-1 in my transmission with no problems so I'm going to continue.

But, I have had no problems and I have read it is hit and miss to whether people have problems with the new transmission fluid, so unless someone has experienced no problems with DW-1 I would go with the recommendation of Matt.

ATF-Z1 can still be purchased from Ebay, there's a seller who claims to have over 1,000 cases.

Yup, you gotta watch ebay like a hawk. I don't see any on there right now but about a month ago there was a few cases available at a good price.
