So I would suggest if anybody wants to keep their M6 long term, ATF fluid change at 60k mile intervals definitely a worthwhile task.
I wish I changed mine at 40 or 50k instead of when I did at 80k. Just like you found, I had a lot of metal particles on the magnet and the fluid was in rough shape. I used atf multi vehicle max life and have had no issues to date. I have put about 3k miles since the change. I’m with you, I can’t see paying the oem prices.
