I find Dex III in the stores...and as I still can, I'd just say take the conservative route. Use the fluid BMW tells you to use. It knows more than us. Nothing personal, anyone, but as soon as a discussion goes, "well I heard that such and such is okay too," I remember I'm on the Internet, where facts can get created very easily. Not that it isn't worth researching if you're interested, but it's a lot of work you don't need to do.

Dex III for PS AFAIK is still the recommended fluid.

Also, didn't read this yet, but just want to add: OE,OE,OE
I usually agree with the do it all oem only, but as much as i know bmw masterminds are smart i also know that they say " lifetime" diff and trans and changed the m3 oil from 5w30 to their own 10w60 for $15 a liter, plus have recalls..... So study for yourself also but most oem is good advice
