I have a 2000 528i with the GM auto 97,XXX miles

my tranny takes about a half to one second before shifting to 2nd and 3rd.

I would like to change the fluid

should i flush or just replace the pan fluid and filter?

what fluid should i use?

There are several older threads discussing several aftermarket synthetic alternative on this site. Do a search and I think you'll find some very good on-point DIY information.

I would try to help more, but I have a manual tranny and just recently completed the fluid change for that--but that won't help you on your auto. But as for fluid, you may want to check out the appropriate auto syn products by Red Line and Royal Purple, both of which have been reviewed well for BMW use by folks at this forum and others. I replaced my manual fluid with Royal Purple Synchromax to excellent results.
