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?

95 525i 5 speed 5/94,
94 540it built 3/93, converted to 6 speed w/a 93 e32 M60 engine
01 540it, 6/01
03 325i, 9/02
10 mini 6 speed

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.

95 525i 5 speed 5/94,
94 540it built 3/93, converted to 6 speed w/a 93 e32 M60 engine
01 540it, 6/01
03 325i, 9/02
10 mini 6 speed
