Automatic Trans fluid question, 07, 335i

Any suggestion on transmission fluid?

Debating between, Redline D4, Pentosin, & ZF Lifeguard. I have used redline for manual trans and diff for my E30, but wanted suggestion for E90.

Also the car have 116K on the clock, is it also good time to change out the filter as well?

I would only use ZF fluid, or Ford Mercon SP. There were some Ford and Lincoln models that used ZF transmissions, and they sell their own Mercon SP fluid for them which seems to be completely identical to ZF Lifeguard 6 but at 1/3 the price.

Always a good idea to change the filter, which is integrated into the plastic pan for this transmission. My usual procedure is to just drain and fill the fluid at least once, twice if you're able, and then change the pan and filter after it's had a chance to mix in the new fluid.

Liqui Moly provide the oil you require. Their customer service is top notch.

This is the oil for my ZF6HP19 E90

Go to the Liqui Moly Webpage and type in your car details and it will show all the oils and fluids for your vehicle. Surely the filter would be a must do along with the oil.
