Feeler: MTF-LT-3 Manual Transmission Fluid

I just ordered a 5 Liter jug of BMW MTF-LT-3 to change the trans fluid on my '09. Once I get it changed in the next few weeks I was wondering if anyone would like to purchase the remaining 2.5L-3L? This would have to be a local pickup (West/NW Suburbs of Chicago). I'm thinking $70 would be a fair price. Just let me know if you're interested.

Ok, fluid change complete, and I have exactly 3L left in the jug.

Just curious, when is it recommended that you change the transmission fluid? Did you feel a difference?

As per BMW, it's a lifetime fluid. Although, the dealer said changing it at 60K probably isn't a bad idea if I plan to keep the car long-term. I'm just shy of 50K right now.

I only had a few slight hangups going into first and third (most people probably wouldn't notice), which I think are a little better, but overall I don't think it made a huge difference. However, I now have piece of mind for the cost of 2L of fluid and 2 drain plugs. :-)

Sounds good. I work in buffalo grove, so we should be able to work something out. Let me think about the Sonax idea.
