The promised video to DIY DCT fluid change. EDIT!!! Make sure to use ISTA+ and use the "Service Function". A German Forum member said it would make a difference...I didn't believe it. I re-checked my fluid level again using ISTA+, and there actually was a 400ml difference. I know that's not much, but still better to be safe.
I've added the ISTA+ bit into the video...it's just an overview of using the program when performing the fluid fill.

If the transmission is a new exchange, then yes. If you are simply draining, filling, and changing filters, you'll get approximately 6.5 Liters out.

I think doing it twice would be a waste of money, for normally used M5

Folks! I just learned a bit extra.
A German M Forum member said I should have used ISTA+ to measure temperature and perform the "Service Function". He said it may make a fluid level difference.
So I figured what the heck, I'll re-check using ISTA+. I expected no change in fluid level. I wound up adding about 400mL on top of the 6.5L I added previously.
I couldn't believe it! I don't think it would be super detremental, but if we're going to do it, we want to do it right....so I'm going to edit the video to show the ISTA+ portion too.

Hmm, thanks for adding that, it looks like I'm going to have to factor in purchasing ISTA+ now, this is not going to be cheap but still cheaper than the dealers and ISTA+ can be used for other things I suppose.

So 7 litres of oil now.

According to BMW...never

According to Getrag every 80k km (50k mls)

I did it way early at 50k km's...just to make the video for folks.

So how the heck do you actually purchase their products? I've been searching their "website" and have yet to find a way to order the pan? How did you complete your order?

Thanks,
Lance

Hi, I used ISTA for the fill temperature. When driving I used the Bimmerlink...it was much easier. Getriebetemperatur does show the Transmission temp.
