Tranny oil change

I just changed the tranny oil and thought I would show a picture of what the drain plug looked like. Some shavings and grud, Oil hasn't been changed since I have purchased it. Is this about norm. I can't tell the last time oil was changed.

Re: Tranny oil change

I zoomed the picture and it is still hard to see but it looks like fine filings. As long as there are no chunks or slivers you are fine. Normal gear wear.
