Rear Differential Fluid

Getting ready to do a rear differential fluid change on my 14 328d. Anyone know what oil is recommended for the rear end? Any oil you guys recommend?

Thanks!

Used a mityvac pump to pump out the old fluid. Refilled with one bottle of this https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/gea...ly-99991754600

75w-140 is too thick per BMW specs. May be ok?
But they call for 75w-85 or thereabouts.

Good catch. I posted the incorrect link in my past post. I will go edit it. I used Liqui moly 75w -90. https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/gea...ly-99991754600
