Here is what I did when I changed the transmission oil in my E90.
I do have a transfer pump but I did not want to be under the car to pump the oil up in the tranny. Instead, I went to Home Depot and got some flexible tubing to fit my funnel. I put the funnel up in the engine compartment and routed the tubing into the transmission filling hole. This was a cheap, easy and effective way to fill the transmission.
