Detroit trans fluid 75W-90

this is supposedly the exact same fluid that MB uses at the dealer, just under the Detroit brand (MB owns Detroit). You can usually only buy a barrel from MB part sites but this is the 1 Gallon version. Was hard to find but worth it if you only want to use MB spec fluids
