Nice DIY!

The Amsoil ATF meets those specs. ETL-7045E, ETL-8072B & N402
Amsoil ATF

The problem I see here is the same oil conforms to many other specs including Dex 3 and BMW says it's a no-no to mix. Can you really please all with one oil? (Rhetorical question)

That's actually interesting...I did not see those oils before. If they are specifically made to conform only to 8072B, then it sounds better to me than Amsoil fluid...:dunno:
Yes, you can often please many specs with one oil. Many specs overlap (or are near identical) and as long as there aren't conflicts there is no reason why one can't serve many. You'll see that there are other ATFs on their site also. The one I linked does not meet some of the other specs.

If you search both of those oils you'll see they meet other specs too. It's just not noted on the site. The Fuchs number is TITAN ATF 3353 if you'd like to research it.

Your gutsy...at 98k with this damned ZF 5HP19, I'm not going to change it unless I start having problems (knock on wood), then will that maybe merit messing with it since that would still be cheaper than swapping it out.

I think if I do swap it out, I might be tempted to put in a manual :D
Lot's of guys change their fluid with far more miles than that. You're just now hitting the miles recommended by ZF for replacement.

Meistersatz is an OE supplier to BMW, but that doesn't mean they make every filter/gasket/etc for BMW. Someone else may have made that particular filter.

For the 360 and 390R, both Elring and Meistersatz are offered, though neither are listed as OEM, but both manufacture for BMW, and both have proven to be of high quality.
