Peter, for what this is worth: I had my partial change at 58,000 and had the ATF analyzed by Blackstone Labs in Indiana. The report was that I had the original fill and they recommended that I had another partial done after 30,000 miles. I have a 80,000 B service due soon and am seriously considering having that done after 22,000. This dealer will do a flush and the tech I like recommends it. I might go that way instead, but I'm still up in the air about it. I don't like the idea of not dropping the pan and changing the filter, which is the way they do it there.
