But if you're replacing your R50 early year trans (Midland) you will need 3 bottles to top it off correctly. You will also need 3 bottles to fill all Gen 2 cars. 1 Review 5 great product Posted by Raphael on 31st Oct 2021 The stick was getting slightly stiff on my 07' R56. I felt a positive change as soon as the oil was changed. Keeps shifting smooth even during cold starts in winter. I will buy it again in 20,000 miles.
