I think Hans and BMW dealership make a living fixing broken transmissions. They might not be the best source for advice on this subject.

Your thoughts are always appreciated. The car is paid off so I'd like to keep it as long as possible...
I have heard the BS about how changing the fluid can cause problems but I don't believe it. I have owned over a dozen cars and the ones that I neglected to change the ATF in caused me problems. The ones that I changed the fluid/filter every 40K miles went for years without a problem. It just makes sense. Of course you have to use the correct type and amount of fluid or you can cause problems.
