Question Anyone use Mercon SP?

I'm thinking of doing a fill-n-drain on my 2006 325i. It has the ZF auto transmission. I have done quite a bit of research on here about which tranny fluid to use. So without starting another argument on the pros/cons of each, I'm looking for some feedback from folks who have actually used Mercon SP in their BMW tranny, how many miles, any issues, etc.

TIA

Won't use it. I will change the ATF maybe 3x (50k mile interval ). Not worth the savings to not use LG6
