]. I know because i have an '06 e90 xi and just did a pan/fluid change today and the exhaust is nowhere near the tranny fill bolt and the fill bolt is not on top of the transmission.
Yes it was my E90 325xi with a ZF Transmission, NOT GM Transmission. Exhaust bracket covers the gap to access the fill hole on the top of the ZF Transmission...
I used the ZF Fluid for the refill, they say it runs cooler for better mpg's...
