Do you have any details on the DCT fluid change?

what shop in SD did you go to for your DCT fluid change? Thanks in advance..
Sorry missed this long ago.

La Jolla Independent. Dealer would not do it, neither would another indy shop I tried. The place is kind of a dump but charming also... I do keep going back for minor things. They are super cool about computer resets and the like for free.

I checked motul and they offer me the MOTUL MULTI DCTF

Also, how much oil is needed? ECSTuning service kit offerrs 6 liters, BMW dealer told me 8.8, and motul said 7.8 liters.

Yes, Motul Multi DCTF is fine. Here is the Motul datasheet where they say it is okay for use in the BMW DCT:

I believe you need 6 litres for a change. The higher numbers quoted by the dealer are for a "dry" transmission that is brand new and has no fluid in it at all. When changing the fluid, you can't remove all of it.
