Gearbox Oil Change

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:

Item Interest
So today I decided to change my gearbox oil as the last change was last year aroun March.

I gave it a shot this morning while the gearbox was still cold to avoid burning my hands.

I first started by removing the filling plug, put my finger in and the oil level was low. I then removed the draining plug and guess what, a very dark oil was flushing out.
I waited for the oil to drain out and put back the draining plug, and started to pump oil into the filling hole till it flows out.
My question is, after how many KM must I change this oil to avoid this black nonsense which I saw???
The car is now shifting much better.
