Motul gear300 75W90 for the gearbox.
Really made my gearchanges smoother. I bought 2L and filled through the gear lever inside the car. Used all 2 Liters.
Never had a problem and changes gear like a dream.

I have some Motul 90PA going in the diff. Haven't done the change yet though.
There is a new Motul diff oil which is supposed to be better out now. Can't remember the name, but I think it's in the 300 range.
Cost about twice as much as the 90PA though :(

I've used Motul Gear 300 and Motul 300V last service, i found the Gear 3000 takes longer to warm up and crunches in cold weather... now i use stock oil for gearbox and diff.
I'd recommend Motul 300V for engine oil :D

I found nissan oils more reliable and what i meant by more reliable is that they are designed for any or most weather condition. :D

Redline Shockproof Lightweight for the gearbox (overfilled to 2.2 litres)
Redline Shockproof Heavy for the diff

Whichever fully synth 10/15W40/50 oil takes my fancy for the engine. Currently using Halfrauds Motorsport, which is a Comma oil.

Going by the manual i have found:


Gear Oil 1.8 Liters

Rear Diff 1.2-1.4 Liters

500ml brake fluid i would of thought, completely empty the Master cylinder and top up with new fluid. Then on each caliper staring furthest from the MC about 1-2cm drop in level in the MC. Thats how i was taught at Mazda.

Hope this helps :)

No, no, no. Don't empty the BMC. If you do that, you'll land up having to bench bleed it to get the air out and potentially have air locks in the lines. Just bleed every line thoroughly and keep topping the reservoir. Let it get quite low initially, but not empty.

I didnt mean bleed until the MC was empty, at work we had a suction pump to empty then top up then start bleeding. Im sorry if i came across the wrong way.

I only ever used 1 500ml bottle of brake fluid that should be more than enough and the MC looks slightly smaller than all Mazda's so id say 500ml should be plenty. As for oil id just buy 2 Litres and keep the other as spare for the next change.
