Any particular reason the new BMW synth gear oil is RED?

So I'm changing my trans & fd oil today and need to use some new oil and some older oil, both the same viscosity. No biggie, but the new packaged stuff from BMW is red. It made a pretty swirly pattern going down my funnel, but why RED? Why any color other than the honeyed color it usually is. Of course I don't know if they add yellow #5 to the regular oil... confused.gif

I think they are telling you that they are not using the same sub-contractor for their oil. I would be hesitant about mixing the red and the honey. (although I once dated a beautiful Honey-Red haired Girl, but that's another story) I know that mixing the modern oils is not really a horrible thing like it used to be, but I still wouldn't do it if I had a choice

Maybe it's because the cost of repairs to the "best" motorcycle keeps going up at rapid pace and we will all bleed red!>!????
