Good news.

Keep in mind, with the gearbox/transmission, you really only drain about 60% of the fluid when you drain/fill. The rest is still living in the torque converter and theres no easy way to get at it. Some guys run the new fluid for a couple of weeks, then drain/refill again.

And while you're showing love to your X5 by changing fluids, don't forget the power steering reservior. At every other oil change, I suck the old fluid out with a turkey baster and refill it with Mobil 1 synthetic AFT (the one in the silver bottle). The PS system system uses ATF.

I buy my Redline stuff at Amazon.com. It's the lowest price I've found and ships for free.
