So, since you changed to Extra-S in 2 SpecBeasts, was it worth it ? Did you like how tranny was shifting after ?
They shipped the barrel just as shown, it is not in any box or anything they just tape the shipping label right to the side. I would have paid extra for them to insert it into a plastic bucket, that is all it really needs for protection. My garage still smells of gear oil that leaked out of it.

In one of the vehicles I noticed a difference
Previously first thing driving with the car cold, the shifting felt notchy in cold temps(30 degrees and below) for a few minutes. After the Extra-S was added it became much smoother.

In the other Spec. B there was really no difference, the previous owner may have already done the fluid swap as what drained was pretty clean.
Overall I think it was worth doing.
