Has anyone else heard this from their dealer? My concern is with the auto xmsn in my 1997 540i (E39). I have 107K miles and have not changed fluid. I learned of the issue well after 50K miles. I want to keep the car but don't necessarily want to spend $5-7K for a new xmsn if this one goes. So the dealer just told me (today) that the new policy is to change the fluid but not to do a flush. BMW dealerships doing the lifetime fluid change (for $270)? The thinking is now that "lifetime" referred to the fluid and not the car. Anyone else heard of this and does anyone know of some results from doing the fluid change?
