Mein Auto: Acura TL
Roger that, I had that experience with my TL (which has a glass transmission which brought a class action lawsuit and settlement from Honda) which during the first change they recommend at 100K (I did mine at 68K) that you do a 3x3 drain/refill which is basically do the change with 3 quarts, drive around shift through all 5 gears, drain/refill and repeat 2 more times in order to change out all the fluid in 1 session. Would not recommend that at high mileage but mine was fine at the time at 68K.
Good point about mixing fluids, think I'll get the kit from Schpenxel's recommendation, ZF fluid and non-BMW taxed pan
