I realize it's a BMW but there are two reasons I don't want to drop the pan. First. it's a lot more expensive and while I own a Bimmer, the timing sucks for my finances. Second, I've heard horror stories about trannys failing 2k miles after fluid changes. If I minimize the amount of fluid change, maybe I avoid a failure?
Since the filter is built into the pan, wouldn't it be crazy to try and reuse the pan?
