Mein Auto: 2004 X3 3.0
Yep. I'm one that believes nothing is lifetime. I replaced the auto tranny fluid, transaxle and transfer case at 100,000 miles. I took it to an indy that charged me $680.00 for the whole job. I also made sure he used genuine BMW fluids. The part #'s for the fluids are stamped right on the tranny. He was a little miffed because he had to get the fluids from the dealer and they only came in bulk. Oh well. I had the indy give me a sample of the fluids to see the condition as well. I was surprised at how good the fluids looked. One thing to remember, do not do a "power flush", just do a simple drain and fill. Too many horror stories of tranny's failing soon after doing a power flush. Just my 2 cents. I've had her since mile 9 and now have 118,xxx on her, still drives like the first day I got her.
