Transmission Flush FLUID

Hi all,

i have decided to do the Transmission Flush, the car ( 03 - 325i - Manual Transmission ) has 100k miles already and never done it before,so I want to know what would be a GREAT fluid to use and where to buy it? How many quarters or Liters will this car needs ?

I went to Pepboys and ask them if they do it, the guy told me that if it was AUTOMATIC they will not do it, but since is starndard transmission is Ok.....why would they dont take care of this if automatic ?

Well, let me know what you think. Thanks.

I dont know why they wont touch an auto, probably they dont know the correct procedure on a BMW, as for how many litres and what fluid you need for yours if they dont know that stay well clear of pepboys

They may be concerned about some models having a "lifetime fluid".
