You'll be OK but is stay with OEM if warranty is a concern.

I got all that redline stuff fcpeuro for a good price. its sitting in my garage to be swapped out soon... Seems like all the motorsports guys love redline... plus the diff fluid comes with Friction modulator and is not 50 bucks a quart like oem.

Thanks all. I will be going with Redline it seems. I have used it before (manual Tranny fluid in my STi) and I didn't have many concerns. Looks like when I do my Diff and Tranny I will be using Redline fluids!!

I was going to use ECStuning.com as they seem to have some good prices.

The rear diff fluid is super easy to change. Just get this to make filling it easy...

I tend to do the work myself unless I am in a crunch.

I tend to use the spray bottle method. Quite a bit cheaper however, definitely not as nice as what you posted...I wouldn't be sad if someone gave me one!

Based on my recent experience, I would recommend Reggie's Motorworks in Noblesville
