Hi guys i know this issue has been covered before.

My question is i have a 2002 530d auto with 184000 miles and i was thinking of getting the oil and filter changed in the auto transmission but searching in here and other forums mainly people say to leave it alone at the milage?

Where some have changed there and it's been running fine.

Should i change mine yes or no any advice will be great.

Also i called my local auto transmission specialist who wants £105 plus vat is that price right?

thanks for the help :thumbsup

p.s the gearbox is running perfect at the moment.

Bit of a judgement call really Ali

I changed mine, then changed again with a filter change at 102K, and it's perfect ever since - had got a bit sluggish - transformed it really.

Depends on your plans for the car - if your gonna keep it get it done, but make sure the guys doing it know what they are at - 100 quid sounds cheap to me, doubt if he's changing the filter and double changing at that price.
