Where should I get auto transmission drain and fill?

I have an 09 328 auto which means I have the "GM" sourced transmission.

I am coming up on 50k miles and would like to do a transmission fluid replacement... can I get a reputable transmission shop to do this or do I need to go to the stealership?

Stealership will hose you. Go for a reputable indy- there is also a list as a sticky around here for u to choose from. Ask around your area for some good BMW mechanics. It's a simple job but must be done correctly, particularly the mechatronic sleeve if you plan on replacing the seal, which is known to leak.

ZF fluid did the job!
