If anyone is going to do this and you're apprehensive, just PM me and I'll give you my cell # and we can talk & I'll help in any way.
Great write up! If you replaced the tranny fluid, did you get a new transmission pan as well? I'm trying to plan out this service for my X.

Also, I noticed a 14mm plug on the bottom of the engine in front of the engine oil pan. Do you have an idea what that one is for?
