Depending on which gearbox you have, there is a different means of filling it, most of them involve getting under the car, pulling a plug bolt and adding oil through it. Some of them are counter intuitive, i.e. what looks like a drain plug is actually the base of a verticle tube that spills out as you add oil to indicate that it is full. Have a look at the Transmission pan and count how many bolts hold it to the transmission body. Let us know and we can take you further.

This may be of some help Notes/Photos for changing the transmission oil and filter on 1998 E38.
Make sure its the right transmission though.
