... And gasket too of course.

By the way, I paid over $50 for that same kit from Pelican.

GM recommends you fill that GM transmission with Dexron VI fluid. You'll need just under 6 quarts.

Prior posts have been updated to reflect current prices.

I'm considering giving the Meistersatz filter a try next time given the positive feedback on it. It's also 20% the cost of the OE BMW option.

A 50K mile change interval is about 2 years of driving for me, so the bolts should be fine.

The bolts came with my $50.

They have a very mild torque requirement.

I installed the Vaico filter kit from ecs about 2 weeks ago, I don't like the all rubber gasket, it's already seeping all around the pan. I ordered a meistersatz with the metal gasket that I plan to put in tomorrow.

Yup, metal gasket is the way to go on these. Sucks you have to drop the pan again. Maybe clean it up and try putting a thin layer of RTV around the pan for this fluid change interval?

I got the meistersatz filter from RMEUROPEAN , it's metal with all new bolts, for $23.00. I haven't installed yet but I'm sure it will give me a good seal.

Correct, has some rubber in it. The alternative gasket for the GM transmission is not reinforced with metal and was prone to leaking.

Currently, the filter to go with is the AC Delco 96042545:

Exact same as the Filtran (OE) filter you get when buying the "OE BMW" one except at half the cost.

Matching gasket is the ACDelco 96042862:

Stick with OE or OEM. Cheap filters are cheap for a reason.
