    To change the tanny and diff oil they want 400 bucks. The only reason I'm not doing it my self is because I want the OEM long life tranny oil and I don't want to buy a barrall of that shit. They want a hour labor for the tranny and a hour for the rear diff. I mean come on man two fucken plugs on each and 20min to drain and and fill.


    I'm not being a cheapo but what the fuck. :squint:

    right now I have M1 ATF in the tranny and M1 gear oil in the diff.

    You can buy better stuff than the OEM fluids and its very easy to do both tranny and rear diff.

    I know I have already changed my oils my self in this car I just wanted to try out the OE stuff with out buying excess (IE you have to buy 5L) that I might not use again because I don't like it over what I'm running right now.

    what sort of bmw do you have? when i worked at a bmw dealer, all of the current model cars' trannies were "non-serviceable"

    M3, and yes the tranny are serviceable just BMW did not want the dealer to touch them.

    Did you not notice the drain plugs on them???

    what i mean was the rules were that they were to remain "unserviceable". you didnt change fluid and you didnt repair them, you only replaced
