Hi Ian,
I tried this link when I was looking for Diff oil on my 525d 2002 saloon, It is not listed and when I selected the best fit a 525d touring E39 no gear oils came up on Opies list.
I found that for NON LSD Diffs this oil is to spec: Fuchs Titan Sintopoid 75w-90 Synthetic Gear Oil GL5 1L. You should need between 1 and 1.2 litres as depending what BMW TIS you look at the quantity alters, on the VIN checker it's 1.2 Litre
I checked this Oil out with Fuchs UK office and they confirmed its for 2002 e39's
And Tim at Opie Oils also agrees, You can get a discount from Opie as you a Bimmer forums member which will almost cover postage on 2 litres. Cannot help on the gear box sorry.
