You have to fill it from the bottom of the transmission pan. There is a whole procedure to go through that is probably best left to a qualified BMW mechanic. It must be kept very clean, though, as a piece of lint in the fluid could rui the transmision. I had mine done at the dealer and was charged 2 hours labor. I did, however, provide my own transmission fluid
Mobil 1 synthetic ATF - 4 quarts).
