Trying to find the correct type of transmission fluid to add

Customer Question

trying to find the correct type of transmission fluid to add to my BMW 2001 330i, it has a leak
JA: Can you actually see the leak? And is the fluid itself bright red, or is it dirty?
Customer: not a bright red but looks red
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: nothing yet just got the car, do you think its a seal
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: transmission slips but it shifts fine thru all the gears

Hi, I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you today.
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

here's the information you need, see attachment.

Thanks, Ron
