Any 'Dexron VI' fluid will work.

It is approved for all GM transmissions, which you have.
The current BMW Part number is (83 22 0 397 114) for reference.

I used Havoline's Full Synthetic Dexron VI spec transmission fluid.
Here is a link. Under the "Applications" link, you can see where the BMW part number is referenced.

Yup! All E46s equipped with "X" drive have a GM automatic tranny.

You can also go to the dealer and give them you VIN, they will sell you the exact ATF recommended for your car. The price of BMW ATF has come down and it is only slightly more expensive then buying something at the parts store. I just did a drain and fill and it is running very smoothly, I did NOT drop the pan or change the filter.
