The cap is black and does not say anything

Well that doesnt help lol.  Usually there's a sticker ring on it and depending on the color determines the fluid.  Basically, if you have dynamic drive it takes the chf-11 and if it doesn't then it takes ATF.  Run the vin if you aren't sure.

Alright concours bmw milwaukee has told me no adaptive drive and does not know what fluid. Fluid in the bottle is yellowish brown tinted

If it doesn't have dynamic drive then it should be ATF which shouldn't be brownish yellowish obviously. The chf-11 is that color so I'd have to go with chf-11.

If the car took ATF fluid and I flushed it out with chf11s would that be a potential problem?

It could be but to be honest im not sure how different the properties of each fluid are to say if damage would be done to seals and other components.  They're both common hydraulic fluids in othet applications.  Its not like the difference between brake fluid and atf for example but I can't say with certainty if they're interchangeable if flushed.

@GunMetalGrey Maybe the shike and 420 should be combined?

How much did the axle/bearing/sprocket/wheel/tire setup set you back?

It was a few hundred for the rear axle kit. It's really the only large expense I've had so far tho.

I would think not a big deal, the only problems I have read about are people putting ATF in cars with a central hydraulic system supposed to have CHF 11 and then the leveling suspension starts leaking.  That was on an old 7 series though.

I worked on a friends new to him 2012 Cooper S this past Saturday.  I installed a dp, cai and tune.  It's the first modded cooper S I have driven and it was a blast!  I've always loved the stock Cooper S but with a little more power this thing is a blast!  It does remind me why I hate adding power to FWD though.  No traction and torque steer for days.  It's a great daily and he's using it to commute from Whitewater to Milwaukee right now.

Funny side story, he informed me that he'd have to start shipping parts to my house because his fiance got mad at the number of parts showing up to their house within a week of owning the car.  He had parts at the house before he had possession of the car... can't say I haven't done that!

This. Been there, done that. I had my Vishnu tune ordered for my 335 before I bought it. Which reminds me, it's still for sale!

Had spare sport seats taking up room in my storage unit so I figured I’d put one to use.

Added some bracing on the top and pedal stays on the deck to keep everything from moving

Bring on winter I guess
