    Hey guys, 2008 535i Sport Package here... I'm considering changing the "life-time" fluid in my auto transmission. I have about 83,000 miles...its never been done before. I have heard to leave it alone, or its too late to do it now because I might mess up the tranny. Other people say that I...

    I noticed that my 2006 BMW x5 4.8 iS has the lifetime transmission fluid. But I believe that's only up to 100k miles and I'm almost at 108, 200 miles. Should I change the fluid? If so, what should I use and what kinds of additives, if any, can I use (such as the Lucas additive for...

    I have a 08 E60 (528i) N52 88k miles and wanted to have my transmission flushed. After speaking with several people, I was recommended to take my bimmer to a local indy who apparently does great work and really knows his stuff. Well, I contacted the Indy and made an appointment to drop off my...

    I have a 2004 320i (automatic) with just over 200, 000kms and cold days during the winter (even after 5-10 minutes of warming up) it wouldn't move until it hit around 4000 rpms then once it found second gear it seemed fine. but it sounded awful trying to hit second. so i had brought it to get...

    '97 528i A4S270R transmission. Revs jumped up once driving on flat road at 40mph. The next time I drove it, it wouldn't shift higher than 2nd gear. Everybody says rule out the easy things first, so I dropped the pan and put Valvoline MaxLife. At over 120k, the car had Esso oil, possibly the...

    My car hit the mileage to check/change/flush the trans fluid. I've been told this isn't a good idea so I'm reaching out to you guys for some direction. Is it a good idea to change/flush the fluid? And if YES, can someone in the San Antonio area offer me garage suggestions? Thanks in...

    Guys, 1. Does anybody know if the transmission filter is the same for automatic and manual transmissions. All I got after searching for the part # is 24117557070 and that is for automatic transmission. 2. What transmission fluid do you reccommend for a 2001 Z3 2.5i 3. Does anyone have the DIY...
  8. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    So i went to Cain BMW to see what the issue is with the transmission. When going from park to drive it takes 1 or 2 seconds and makes a click/clunk noise sometimes. The guys here at Bimmerfest say that its the Guibo/Flex Disc. But the other issue is the harsh shifting/downshifting and sporadic...
  9. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I changed the transmission and differential fluids today and all I can say is: WOW! It shifts like butter. Got rid of the clunkiness and brings back life to the old girl. I used Red Line synthetic MTL for the tranny and Red Line differential fluid 75W90 for the diff. The diff was extremely...
