I'm at 57k miles and just did all three. Go for it at your next oil change. I recommend the Royal Purple trans fluid (I'm 6MT too) the shifts were noticeably smoother right after.

I'd do all 3, going to do mine as soon as my warranty is up in 4k miles

I've heard Redline also makes great trans fluid.

Royal purple for the diff and trans. Diff is silent and trans shifts like butter.

Thankyou , I called the dealer they changed my diff/tranny fluid at the end of my maintence at 43,000 miles . Those should be ok I'm going to change the power steering fluid this weekend as it should have been done at 30k miles and I'm at 55k...

Just did mine. I'm at 109K. Replaced with Red Line Products.

Just to throw in the OEM fluids debate here. Some say go OEM all the way and others say no way in hell. I have faith in the Red Line product but will change my fluids every 20K for piece of mind. Bimmer World and TMS both use Red Line so I feel safe.

My two cents.
