Has anybody changed transmision fluid.
Can you do it with a topside extractor.
If not, where is the drain plug?

lifetime lubricant

I realize the manual says its lifetime and needs no change, but I want to upgrade to the redline ATF which is a much better product and produces smoother shifts, especially after installing a ssk.

ATF in Manual tranny

BMW require ATF in their manual transmissions. (the only difference is the weight of the gear oil)
The change to Redline 4DATF was recommended by Rob Levingston(sp?) at UUC and I've seen it reported many times on UUCdigest for other manual BMW's (mostly e36 M3's)

Tranny fill

Thank you ayn.
