I just changed my diff fluid today and did not replace the old washer with new ones.. is this ok? I haven't noticed any leaks at all.. so I assume that I'm fine..

BTW, the diff oil at 53k miles looked very black and with what looked like metal dust/shavings in it! I'd definitely recommend changing this at a much much earlier mileage! Not sure what BMW was smoking when they said the fluid was LT.

I did. No issues here. Just retorqued the fitting to the specified level.

+1 on the diff fluid replacement. I too was simply amazed at the muck that came out. As easy as this procedure is they really have to be cutting the maintenance margin thin to believe this is no longer part of the standard warranty on the car. I guess the concept of "lease it and leave it" after three years is par for the course these days... :rolleyes:
