Do you mean the brown flask shaped bottle with the black cap? They can get very tight over time. Best thing is to use a dry cloth or rag & give it your all. Anti Clockwise I'm sure!
If it's very slippy & covered in oil, dirt etc give it a wash with warm water & dish washer fluid. Something that will remove the grease. Dry it off then try again.
The bottle can be removed with the hose on the bottom still attached !!! If you need to hold it in one hand while trying to twist the cap of with your other hand.
If all this fails then may I suggest one of those handy gadgets for opening Jars. They can be picked up in most household goods stores. This should give you the leverage needed.

it is a sealed trans. you will have to bring it to BMW to have them take a look.... they dont put a dip stick on that car and many other's so you can't do anything except bring it to them to have it worked on... sorry for the bad news.... hope this helps you

On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

3 things it could be
1/ is the oil pump is not getting enough oil
2/ the oil is the wrong type for your car as you should be running 20W 40 SHELL.
3/ You have a OPLS(oil pressure light switch) in the engine and that could be faulty.
SO try No 2 first (drain and refill) then try it on a long run if still playing up then let me know Ron
