Don't overlook your transmission
Since BMW state the fluid in the gearbox is ‘lifetime’. Which actually in BMW language means 100,000 miles. However the manufacture of the transmission for BMW, ZF claim the fluid and filter pan should be replaced every 60,000 miles or 8 years.
The transmission is an extremely sophisticated piece of engineering, they are built up of a few hundred components, some of these components are designed to wear out (like clutches) through making use of them. Your driving style and proper maintenance have the biggest impact on the overall life time of these transmission components. With regular maintenance at these intervals we see these transmissions go to very high mileage very little issues, they are very reliable transmissions!

More about our automatic transmission services
We carry out the services using aftermarket fluid and filter pans as we have found these over many years to be very cost affective for our customers and give the same functionality and reliability. Of course if our customers would prefer us to use Genuine ZF fluid & filter pans we are most than happy to do so, of course would be at extra cost.
We also recommend carrying out a Programming software update to the transmission whilst carrying out a service. This will iron out any small issues BMW have noticed over the years. This update also involves updating the complete vehicle systems, such as Engine ECU, ABS, Body control, media system and so on. Which ever system has an update available.
