93 325i is an unknown quantity at this point

If the car is shifting fine then you don't replace the tranny... there isn't a specific mileage at when you say "hmm 160K miles it's due for an oil change and a new tranny".. some last forever, some crap out at 100K miles..basically you replace when it starts acting up

agreed. transmissions are suppose to last as long as the life of the car.. there should be no reason to replace it.

No.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Change the fluids & tarnsmission filter, which is in the main sump. It's likely clogged up by now
