Depends on manual or auto and it will tell you in your owners manual.

Marti was spot on with Dextron III, filter & Gasket as far as my local dealer said.

It is not about me. It is about his car. What do you know about his car? Do you know it is an e60? From his past post he has a M62B40 with a 6 speed gear box. Dextron is right. But what filter and what gasket?

That was my next query, I contacted a few dealers regards to the oil, filter & gasket I'm just waiting on replies before I'll go out buying anything.

Red Line D4 ATF was mentioned somewhere as well so I'm not going to buy anything until I have a 100% answer on what to use.
I certainly don't want to make bits of my box from using the wrong stuff!

There is an label on the gear box. My 540i 6 speed (soon to be a 540it 6 speed) says ATF. The gear box on the 525i says ATF also. That inside the 01' 540it is ATF without a question. You mayhave to crawl under the car to look.
