Excellent DIY and you couldn't have posted it at better time for me. I to have the same tranny in an '03 325i and have been trying to decide what fluid to use for the change. It's not a cost issue with me, I just want to use the right fluid. I have so far been unable to find the original fluid anywhere. Tischer BMW lists the new part number (83220397114) that has apparently superseded 83220024359, but that is Dexron VI, not the original fluid. I don't have anyway of removing all of it, so I'd prefer to go back with exactly what's in it. Does anyone have an online source for the 83220024359 fluid?

Dahammer, call the dealerships in your neck of the wood! They are the only source of the original oil. Hopefully they'll have some left in stock!
Yeah, already called a couple and a no go. The closest 4 dealers are 100, 150, 150, and 190 miles away. I'll try a few more though. What I'd like to find is one that would be willing to ship me some of the stuff, but so far none of them even have it and say BMW has switched it to Dexron VI. As you were, I'm just leary of mixing that in there, no matter what BMW says. Especially since they also say not to change it at all. :)

The first one is FUCHS TITAN AFT 6000 SL, which is a GM approved Dexron VI. Here is the information the manufacturer lists on it:

http://www.fuchslubricants.com/inde...pgear&pcategory=category_38&prod=product_38_1

They claim it as a replacement for the following BMW part #s:
BMW 83 22 0 397 114
BMW 83 22 0 403 248
BMW 83 22 0 403 249
BMW 83 22 0 432 807
BMW 83 22 9 407 858
BMW 83 22 9 407 859

There is no mention of part # 83 22 0 024 359 or ETL-8072B. I found a data sheet at:
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/pdfs/FUCHS - TDS/TITAN ATF 6000 SL.pdf

But it doesn***8217;t list the technical data values.

I can not find any info on the other one, Total Fluidmatic G6. Total***8217;s website lists a Totalmatic G6 Syn though, which is another Dexron VI. But it***8217;s datasheet doesn***8217;t list it as compatible with the ETL-8072B spec either.
