How many miles do you have? That may be too long of a drain interval since there is oil left behind in the torque converter. If you are going to go that route you should see how much BMW will charge to flush the system OR bring your oil to a good transmission place that only service transmissions and let them do the flush.
If no codes are being thrown use Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner (concentrate). It solves rpm fluctuating upon cold start-up. Also, for most BMW problems start off by scanning your car with the Peake Research Tool. It contains the actual BMW codes. If you want to register a newly installed battery for free (just buy a $10 cable) and google/download BMWLogger
