Good post.

A couple of observations:
- for a 328, I used a funnel and about 3ft of plastic tubing to pour in the trans fluid. Took just under 2 bottles of redline MTL. Round the tube down by the exhaust (your CATS must be cold for this!)
- If I had seen this earlier I would have known the correct torque. I overtorqued the drain plug and the material around the hex nut began to crack. At least the threads are OK! Not a big deal - $11 at the dealer for a new plug, but I have to wait a couple of days to drive again.

Thanks for the writeup!
