Not necessarily, ask any old timer..they'll say around 30k...or earlier..Yes BMW quotes the tranny fluid is good till 100k too but that's also when any of their warranties expire also.(No it wont blow up @ 100,001) but A few hundred dollars over the life time of the car is still alot cheaper than a $5,000 transmission.. IMO

OP, Do you have access to a Scan tool ?
