The reason I am asking is that two of my local BMW dealers told me this week that BMW does not recommend replacing the transmission fluid as part of the maintenance schedule for my car even though some sites say it is necessary.

I just did my transmission service at 75k which is early even for ZF but it runs great. Many pan screws were rusted and fluid was black. It took me 2.5 hours and a lift. I recommend it although it's a hard job. You will need a way to get fluid into the transmission due to a tight bend. Hope this helps you.
