Mein Auto: BMW-less for now

Mine has the plastic pan with the built in filter. It's a 328i Coupe with the sport package. I'd love to just change the sleeve and top off the fluid for now if that's possible. I've seen hints that it might somehow not be accessible without removing the pan.

BTW, I'm in ATL. European Motor Cars wants $864 to do the pan drop / change and replace the sleeve.

Thanks in advance,

You are confusing. Is that for a 2006 or your 328i 2007? If the latter, it should be a GM unit, although those problems are common on the ZF.
