Correct Trans Fluid

I have a 2000 323I and I want to service the transmission. I.E. new filter and fluid. The car has had a new transmission installed under warranty by the previous owner. My question is what fluid to use as the 2000 model year had a mid year change of transmission models. My tranny has a green sticker with a BMW part# 83229407807. Any help would be much appreciated.

"Castrol Import Multivehicle" automatic transmission fluid is approved fill for most BMW auto gearboxes including ZF and GM (Strassburg,France) -read back label on the bottle for all spec.
