Its better to have more fluid on hand than less. Besides... you can always use it later on for that second trans fluid change!
It is really so easy there is no reason why you should change the trans/diff fluids more often. Forget BMW's Lifetime fluid BS.
Hahahaha yeah my friend with a E46 confirmed my of the lifetime BS when he did his. Hence why i want to do mine. The other thing i was wondering about is where are central jacking points for these 1 series. I know there are 4 under neath on the skirts but kinda want to get the stands in them ( If thats safe ) Edit: Wait like you have it jacked
