Gravity, oil changing requires one to remove the lower engine plastic to access the engine oil drain plug and oil filter cover (small cover attached with three retaining screws). The oil filter may be some difficulty depending whether or not it has a BMW filter or an after market filter. The BMW filter requires a special wrench. The transmission fluid drain plug is located under the transmission case but requires a 14mm allen wrench. It is also located right above a cross member which make draining messy if you do not have a method to redirect the transmission fluid as it come out. The final drive fluid is straight forward.
As for new fluids, I use Redline Stockproof heavy for the final drive and transmission. The engine oil I used is Amsoil motorcycle oil 20/50 & Amsoil motorcycle oil filters. I order all Amsoil products on line shipped direct to my house. As for the Redline, I buy that at local race tracks but it can also be purchased on line.
Hope this helps. Tom
