I sent that back. Now the latest bottle is PENTOSIN ATF-1, but on the rear of the bottle it says the BMW equivalent is 83229407807, not the 516 fluid. I called them back and complained,and the said it is the fluid that is used in the 335i. However, all the lists I see from BMW lists the 807 fluid for the 4-5 speed transmissions, not the 6 speed 335i steptronic trans. The fluid is already installed and I don't know what to do from this point. Hoping they will send me the correct fluid and I will just keep the car up on the lift until then.
I've been using pentosin ATF1 in my 335I with no problems. If you want to use it, then, thats fine. If not, then go and buy whatever you want at whatever price.
