When they perform the pan gasket/mechatronic sleeve service, they do not replace the fluid. They drain, save, and then top off .

I asked the Service manager (who is a friend) and he said they used to do a full drain/replace, but there are so many of these repairs BMWNA made them stop. The fluid for the ZF transmission isn't cheap.
