Thanks for pointing it out, but I'm aware of the OP's needs. What goes for an engine oil cooler usually (pay attention to the "ususally") goes for a tranny oil cooler too.

My wife is driving her second X1 and she says it is just the car for her. Although it is classified by some motoring magazines as an SUV, it is rather a cross-over from an SUV to a station wagon. The...
