But for a pre-'07 X3 I still lean toward using something as close as possible to the factory fill, such as the Havoline/Chevron multi-vehicle ATF.

Superseding the part no. (83-22-0-403-249 ?) to the Dexron VI part no. is one thing,
but does that make it perfectly suitable for a drain and fill, or only for a flush and fill?
