Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series
There won't be a dipstick. You have to pull out the plug on the side of the transmission while the car is level and the transmission is at normal operating temperature. This is pretty tough for the average guy to do in his garage.
My daughter has a '97. We just take it to a shop and get the fluid replaced every 50k miles and so long as it does not leak, we don't worry about the level between changes.
