Dave -

I don't have any insight on where to source the fluids you mention but I share your concern for proceeding with caution. One counter-thought I had was to stop into a German vehicle (aftermarket) specialty shop as an alternative source of service (and parts, re: specialty fluids, etc.) to the dealership network. Those folks see a lot of specialty cars and oftentimes will have checked out and properly verified alternatives to factory recommended stuff. Another thought is to check out a BMW forum - maybe someone here can point you to one or a quick search on google will produce one. You can't be the only one with this question. Good luck!
