Only 1000miles probably not, but hard to say.

I would drain it, put some cheap ATF in there, drive it a bunch and drain it again before putting the oil you want in there.

Yup, gear oil has sulfur in it.

That's one of the reasons you can't use a GL5 oil in a transmission with brass syncros such as BMWs, it eats the synchos. So you have to use GL4 or ATF in the...

Fuel filter is OE, can't tell if it's original. The clamps are the one use ones. They only tighten, you will have to destroy them to remove them.

225/40 18 will be what you want for the fronts. You could possible run 235/40 18 as well.

The rears should be either 245/35 18 or 255/35 18. The 245s are a safer bet without rubbing however both...
