IMHO, you are on the money with this statement. A good local euro shop in Nashville and my friend, who is an ASE master tech, both say do not flush any transmission after 100k miles.

Get the filter kit, good fluid and do the conventional fluid change. You will not be doing anything harmful. I will change mine, plus the differential, brake and power steering fluids, during the Christmas holidays.

What I think some people might get confused as I did is the difference between flush and swap the fluid...no to a flush after 100k but yes to fluid swap every x amount of time
