Question about 1999 BMW 5 Series
The automatic transmission in a 1999, Series 5 BMW, which is classified as Tiptronic (access to individual Drive positions 1 to 5 is offset toward the Operator, from the P,R,N,D positions), and the transmission is lubricated for its' life; therefore, a dip stick is not available. BMW does NOT recommend shifting the transmission fluid. However, it can be shifted by first draining the old fluid, and then refilling with the recommended fluid level to the fill hole, directly at the transmission itself.
