I just did the transmission fluid drain and fill on 07 335i 89k miles with the new Valvoline Multi-import full synthetic. Seems to be the best fluid you can buy for the best price. check out the data sheets, and it specifically lists the zf 6hp19 as a compatible transmission with the fluid. The car definitely shifts much smoother.

Thanks for sharing your experience. It seems like Valvoline is being overlooked on this forum, considering it is a full synthetic and very reasonably priced. I am considering using their Maxlife ATF as it meets/exceeds the Shell M1375.4 spec.

I used D6 and dont really like it. Its notchy and shifts are sightly harsh. If i use M mode and shift @ WOT around 4k i can feel the notch of it disengaging and then re engaging the clutch. Its like a double clutch. No slipping, no noises, just TOO NOTCHY! However it could be the Alpina flash as I have never shifted that high with the factory TCU flash.
