I don't think I am the only person on here who would advise this to be the best course of action!
Another point just read the threads about people having leaks and see what it does to the transmission, the running of a 6 series is as much about prevention as it is doing regular maintenance......
Definitely do the whole tranny pan, fluid change and megatronic sleeve. Don't cheap out on this. Use OEM parts and fluid.
