To do a proper full flush does require special equipment. BG Products is the largest supplier of the equipment and their fluids meet or exceed most/all car manufacturer's requirements. http://www.bgprod.com/home.html

To the OP, I hope it worked out for you. I spoke to a tech at ZF Transmissions a couple of years ago. He said that if you do it at 60k miles, that's a good idea. He said if you do it much over 60k, it might be better off leaving it alone. I've read about horror stories where owners did the change at well over 60k and their trannies promptly failed and required replacement or rebuilding.

Mine will be done every 30k with the right equipment.
