2 change or not 2 change Auto Transmission Fluid


Considering changing my auto transmission fluid 96 model with 134k .(BMW lifetime fluid type).

Sevrviced by BMW all its life so never changed (not by me I might add they wan'ted 4 times the going rate for the only thing they quoted on) and when asked about a fluid change they said do not change.

Anyone done it, how long ago any comments would be appreciated.
