*this is what the book says
 M3 with standard transmission: At every 3rd
oil change:
Change the transmission fluid and clean the
oil filter (NOTE: this does not apply to the
optional M-DCT Drivelogic transmission.)
Change the differential fluid.
*6 speed
this would be the 3rd oil change

The book is correct and how it is done by us at the dealer I work for. BMW does not count your run in service as the first oil change though, take that into account when counting oil changes. Also the air filter gets changed at that 3rd oil service!
