My Ride: 2001 325xit Step
I have the GM-France built 5L40-E/GM5 (A5S 390R). BMW specs Texaco ETL 8072-B.

Texaco USA does not stock that product in liter bottles. I emailed them (Texaco) and they recommended using Havoline Multi-Vehicle ATF. They attached a product data sheet which cited Multi-Vehicle ATF as a suitable replacement for ETL 8072-B and ETL 7045-E.

I found a local distributor who drop-shipped to me a box of 12 ea. one (1) quart bottles for $47.00.

BTW I found it much easier to gravity feed the ATF into the trans. I used a larger quart sized funnel and some clear plastic tube routed through the engine bay. When the trans was filled, a pair of needle nose vice-grips clamped off the flow.
