Mein Auto: 02 BMW 525i M54 auto 130K
I haven't read the plate on my transmission but the Bentleys, on page 240-4, clearly state my 2002 525i can only be an A5S 325Z. And, I can clearly see the green sticker on my transmission. So I know what set of fluids I can take.

However, with your A4S 310R, you can have either a black or green sticker and the Bentley can't tell you which. Lord help you if your sticker is scraped off as the green-sticker fluids are not compatible with black-sticker fluids.

Is my assumption correct that you, with the A4S 310R, can flush out the old fluid and then replace either with green sticker or black sticker fluids? But I, with my A5S 325Z can only use green-sticker fluids?????
