having never been under my car, i don't know where to look exactly for the tranny tag. Is it easy to find? Where is yours located?
it is on the right side of the tranny housing.
while bmw may claim "lifetime fluid," ron stygar (well known bmw guru) appears to be of a different opinion. it is definitely okay to change your fluid. $254 sounds really steep... i wonder if we're talking about the same thing here.
i am ignorant of what fluid to put in a getrag tranny, but in a ZF tranny you can use D4 ATF (yes, ATF even in a MT car). best bet is to check the sticker on the tranny housing.
