I've never kept a car though past 100k miles, so I am wondering whether its a waste of my money....I wonder how much a buyer would give me extra value for (the extra oil changes I have performed) or an auto trans fluid change....difficult decision.

I have a friend who is still on the original auto BMW transmission on his 528i and it has nearly 200k miles !!! (with no maintenance)
yes seems like were in about the same boat, my main problem with doing this is not the large amount of money it costs. but WILL it start to cause any irratic behavior or damage the transmission with new fluid/filter. i dont want it to start slipping or something lol
