- 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?

Bluebee, it may be worth it to cross-post the info in the glossary to the wiki (which is really supposedly where it should be, as opposed to in the forums but nobody looks there).
Sorry, my transmission is the General Motors A4S 310R (As to the color of the sticker? I have no idea)

Note: This transmission is not mentioned in Bentley on page 020-10. Surprise, surprise, huh?

I should add, the Mobil 1 ATF was put in by 'Beverly Hills BMW' after the previous owner complained of difficult shifting. The mechanic, at the time, made a note of 'thick sludge' coming out of the 'box.
