BMW M4 Transmission Fluid Capacity and Fluid Type

They’re made of synthetic fluids that are considerably more pricey but can survive up to 100,000 miles. With that in mind, it’s usually recommended by BMW to replace the transmission fluid at 50,000 miles and thoroughly inspect the transmission filter when you do.

The BMW M4 is a riot to drive, end-to-end. It’s an aperitif that cleans away the uninspired flavor in my mouth left by its predecessor, which offered an uncomfortable ride and an engine note that wouldn’t have passed the first round of American Idol. All of it has been smoothed over and replaced with a vehicle that leaves me yearning to get behind the wheel more often.

There’s also a slight amount of acoustic electro-trickery piped through the speakers, but the straight-six sounds fantastic, especially at higher revs. And there will be many opportunities to hear that roar because peak torque is available (and staying put) between 2,650 and 6,130 rpm, making it easy to become addicted to plunging my right foot into the firewall.
