You can use the same gear oil in the differential in this car.

Correct; you can just get 4 liters of the same fluid.

It's wierd, but after a week and a really hard session in the 'canyons' we call it (touge hehe) gearbox feels the same as before now. Not hard to shift in, but a little notchy. It appears the car needs a lot of rpm to shift well. Diff next.

Thanks for that write-up! I did my tranny and diff oil changes along with my engine oil change yesterday. It was the first time I've done a tranny/diff service. I was shocked at how much debris came off on those drain plugs! I bought my BRZ used with 13k on the clock. I've taken it to 20k ,but I thought the fluids would have been changed before I took delivery of the car. I guess not! Glad I did it myself.

Though, I think I'll try those tricks of using a funnel and a hose to fill them, next time. I used a fluid transfer pump, and it was a flippin mess.

Thanks again!

Idk if it's just mine. After I replaced my Tranny Fluid with Motul, there are times when my shifter has a hard time going in gear. It has happened before, but it has been more apparent on a certain time of the day.

I work 9-5. In the mornings, shifting has no problem. but after work, it's a little bit harder to go in gear. I do warm up my car about 3-5 minutes, but there is still that difficulty. there is also that crunchy feeling while shifting. Is it the shifter? it couldn't be the tranny right?

I drove the car for about 5km changing gears slowly and it improved a bit but the feel is still very notchy compared to previous. freaking out I did something wrong - I made sure i filled it the correct amount, no sure what else could have gone wrong.
I am feeling the same with mine... But it's not always, usually when i get off after work at 5pm...
