Do you happen to know if it has a replaceable transmission filter?

No filters to worry about on an M32,that's more automatic transmission territory,
if it's a gen 3 box apparently there's no level plug,so you need to measure how much goes in,
i guess the advice to overfill as per the earlier m32's still applies though ?
it maybe worth confirming that.

@mariocb thanks for the information and oil suggestion ;)

@mrtailorson_ dry fill is when gearbox been out and you filling from empty, refill is when you drain it to change old oil for new where 100ml is left in gearbox.
