No noticeable difference, but I experienced no issues prior to the change. The 80K miles I have are like 95% highway so the old fluid was probably in pretty good shape.

Thanks, that is my plan. I don't want to be short (or long) in what I have on-hand, so I was hoping someone else has done it and can tell me how much they used.

How much Transmission Fluid?

I am planning to replace the transmission fluid on my 335d (now at 80K) soon. The dealer wanted $1,050, which is truly insane. I can get the parts (ZF fluid, pan/filter/plug, and replacement bolts)...

You could ask the dealer if they could please, as a gesture of goodwill, remove the pads and re-install them with some brake quiet lube on the backside. Aside from the first stop in a few days, when...

I think we can rule out the oil question based on many of us who have had CBU that also change their oil every 6K or so with an LL-04 oil.

The source of the carbon has to be the exhaust gas...

Total cost to me for all 6 injectors and the carbon SIB was $1100, though I have no idea how much goodwill was provided. I'm guessing I covered about 25% of their actual costs. The intake was cleaned...

Also, FWIW I have changed the oil every ~6500 miles, or twice as often as the car calls for it, so we probably cannot blame the long intervals on this either. I suppose I did put my first 20K miles...

Model year 2015 Ordering Dates?

Anyone know when MY2015 pricing and option details will be released? I think I read somewhere here that production ends in late June for the 2014s, and you need to order 3 months in advance for ED.
