As long as it's completely flushed through no cross contamination you can use it.you shouldn't do any damage
One last thought.as your atf cools then heats and cools and heats cycle it does start to break down turns brown kind of colour now simply changing the atf as good service practice will not only improve steering feel it will clear the system of worn debris floating in the oil.didyou know the reservoir has a filter in it.ive only seen it once but these can collapse or block causing steering to feel heavier then usual.these are only my opinions and not facts guys ok

thanks Aden just wanted to confirm it can be done without problems, don't doubt any thing you said , fluid wise if there's anything better out there why not try it ps from what I've read atf good for about 60k before it breaks down, chf could do100k ,.. makes me wonder if there was a cost factor involved.., but that's just my thoughts

Well as you stated earlier oil technology moves n my e90 uses chf 11s so there's no reason Csl can't
I don't know as for cost factor all I recal hearing was that the cars cost more to make then they were sold for
It's marketing proof that Bmw could make one of the most legendary cars ever.i think that's what their aim is regardless of all the new m series cars they have produced the Csl and e30 m3 evo sport are thier finest cars in my opinion
