      Hi all,

      I want to put new ATF in my 2001 330xi, 200k miles.

      I have no idea what ATF is in there atm.

      I found these two ATFs which are on the GM list and have a really good price:

      1) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M1Y3NPW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
      The havoline multi vehicle matches the name you have on the front page, but the picture on the bottle is different. Is this a safe bet anyways? The price is insane!

      2) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EKMGG92/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
      ACdelco. Again, the name matches the product you describe, but the item number seems to differ slightly?

      Cheers,
      Mo

      Edit: maybe that havoline is not fully synthetic, can't find any text on that on the description

      mtnbimmer is right on here. All USA E46 XI models got the GM transmission and take Dexron VI ATF. If it doesn't say Dexron VI, then it probably isn't.

      I know this is an old thread, but any updates as to the better oil?

      My specs are as follows:
      WBAAL32-0X0FH71511 - BMW 318i 2000 Base
      A4S200R GM AutoTransmission with green data plate
      Mileage: 150,000 km
      Location: Caribbean, warm weather conditions only.

      The OEM site is saying 3 different oils? 83220403248, 83222344588, 83222305395 for the green plate? This oil thing is hella confusing.
      http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=AL32-EUR---E46-BMW-318i&diagId=88_0063

      Please advise. Also, can I use this oil for the e46 "Fuchs Titan ATF 4000" its said to be the ETL 7045E equivalent?

      Let me know. Cheers.
      It's a GM transmission and the latest Dexron VI fluid is backwards compatible so I would go with that.

      Given the age and how outdated the factory fluid is, I would also recommend performing multiple drain & fills to get as much of the old stuff out as possible.

      First kit you linked is compatible then. But, you can do better on the pricing.

      Filter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00496HZCC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      Gasket: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001UEB35G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      Fluid: https://www.amazon.com/ACDelco-10-9...589476907&sprefix=ac+delco+dex,aps,131&sr=8-1

      AC Delco is OE GM. I've ordered that filter/gasket combo a few times and you get the exact same Filtran brand product that comes from BMW.

      You'll need 6-8 QTs of fluid at a minimum. More if you decide to cycle the old fluid out in stages or via the transmission oil cooler.
