E90 330i Manual Transmission Fluid Change Question

I been doing some research and from what I see there is no Filter in our manual trannys. Am I correct or missing something?

I've never seen a manual transmission with a filter. The 330 6spd doesn't have one. Just drain and refill. It's pretty easy, just make sure you have a pump to refill it and I always recommend removing the top fill plug before the drain plug :-)

Thanks for that info you happen to know the fill amount for manual tranny? Is it 6qts?

Im thinking about using Motul Fluid 75w90 fluid for tranny and diff.

It's no where near 6 quarts for a manual transmission. I believe it's about 1.4 quarts. Buy 2 quarts, it's more than enough. Also I don't think you want to use anything anywhere near that thick in this tranny. Most people are using either the factory fill which is either MTF-LT 3 or MTF-LT 2 (read the sticker on the side of the transmission to find out for sure which you should use). If you choose to go with a non-approved / after market fluid most are using Redline D4 (for the cars with the MTF-LT2 sticker) or Redline D6 (for the cars with the MTF-LT 3 sticker), or Royal Purple Syncromesh (I think). Personally I'm not a fan of Royal Purple and went with Redline in mine, but if I had to do it again I'd probably just stick with the OEM oil. Redline was just easier for me to get on the timeframe I had to work with.
