Checking fluid level:

Do I need to check fluid again after going through the gears? Thanks! Keep in mind I am not dropping pan it was done a while back. Just using drain plug and fill plug. I will make sure fill plug loosens before proceeding with anything.
Connect BMW Diagnosis and Information System (DIS) or BMW MoDiC to vehicle.
Call up Service functions (drive).
Carry out fluid level check in accordance with instructions.
If you don't have access to these tools...just make sure once you go through the operations like stated above...once you open the filler neck on the pan that a stream of fluid tries to come out...that's when you know you have enough in there. If no fluid comes out, add more fluid.
