DCT Fluid Replacement Components

I'm planning to change my DCT fluid soon and was shopping around for prices when I stumbled upon this:

http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E92-M3-...ain/ES2677651/

I was curious how much of that is actually recommended/required to change, since I had only read about the 5 or so liters of fluid that is to be changed. The filters seem to make sense but is the cartridge a recommended change? I've looked at other ECS "kits" and they do seem to like to recommend unnecessary extras fairly often.

On a side note, does anybody have instructions for changing out the cartridge and filter? I've only been able to find the fluid "top off" instructions.

I've changed both filters and all the fluid recently.

Doesn't drive any different. But it's probably cleaner. That DCT oil stinks!

Easy enough to do it yourself?

By "I", I meant the dealership....

I'm only good at washing the car...

But it only took the dealership about 2 hours to do the DCT, filters and fluids. And I had brought all the parts. From ECS Tuning.

I went ahead and ordered the full kit, looking through the DCT Fluid change thread it seems simple enough. Wish me luck!
