I've read every single post and still cant make up my mind on which way to go???? OEM Nissan fluid or Redline MT-85?

Any more suggestions for a '13 G37S?

Also, from what i've read, temperature plays a big factor in the fluid. I live in Central FL where its pretty warm/hot year round. That kinda has me leaning toward the Redline, but those few posts where some members were unhappy with the Redline make me skittish!

I switched back to redline mt85 may of 2016, ~10K miles ago. So far so good in the cold. It's still a bit notchy when cold until the trans warms up. I'll usually double clutch the first few shifts. Will report back next winter .
