ATF... Synthetic, or not.

My car is an 83 300D with 220,000 miles and running like new. It has had regular transmission fluid changes, probably with whatever was cheapest. I intend on keeping it until the cows come home, and want to know what is the best ATF. Is it worth the slight expense to go synthetic or is regular stuff fine? Will their be any problems going to synthetic (keep in mind its had regular changes and stood up to the new fluid with no problems)

If synthetic is the best choice, give me your opinions on Mobil1, redline, and amsoil. Thanks. The engine currently has Mobil Delvac-1 5w-40 synthetic diesel oil and the rear end has valvoline synthetic 80w-90.
