Mein Auto: '01 530i
Thanks for the write-up on this, used it today on my 530i w/ 67k miles! As soon as I started, tranny pan drain bolt was too tight & ended up stripping. Decided to keep going... used the siphon pump to drain as much fluid as possible through the fill hole. Then loosened the pan bolts & drained as much as I could before dropping the pan. Once the pan was dropped, used vice-grips to get the drain plug off. Glad I bought a new one before-hand!
