I was about to add this to the transmission summary of recommendations but which automatic transmission do you use the Mobil1 Synthetic ATF in?

The green sticker or black sticker transmission?
- Automatic transmission (green sticker): BMW PN: or Texaco ETL 8072B or Shell LA2634
- Automatic transmission (black sticker): Dexron III ATF (realistically Dexron VI ATF) BMW PN: or Exxon LT-71141

I'm going to guess, based on the "Esso LT-71141" designation below, that you have the BLACK sticker transmission.
Is this assumption (that Mobil1 Synthetic ATF can be used in the (black sticker) automatic transmission) correct?
