If your car has only 15,000 km. you don't need to do anything yet but you are right not to believe the "lifetime fill". If you plan to keep the car the AT fluid should probably be changed every 50,000 miles / 80,000 km.

The the car has only 15,000 KM on it
But i am worried that may be ATF could be kinda expired and lost quality because of TIME (11 years)

Well I'm no expert on autotrans. but I don't believe time alone degrades the fluid. Having said that it certainly cannot hurt to change it and it will give you peace of mind, which I can certainly understand. You may have to do a little research on the correct fluid to use and if there's a filter involved or contact a BMW dealer.

Lifetime fill does not mean FOREVER nor for the lifetime you have the car, it is the LIFE expectancy of maintenance by BMW, usually 100K km's
