Hi Chri93,

I actually decided to have mine changed when there was a leak (under warranty). The original fluid which came out was super clean even with all the tracking at 65K miles.

That said, BMW says lifetime. For them lifetime is 100K miles or 160K KM. My suggestion would be to change it then.

Ciao!

Thanks lutfy for the feedback. I was going to change the fluid for my car which has 33.5k miles. I think I will wait per your feedback or until it starts leaking which it will eventually do
