Transmission Service - 2006 Auto

I've rolled over 30k and am looking at having my mechanic service the transmission. What kind of fluid is recommended for this and how much is necessary? I was debating on going with Royal Purple ATF since I remember reading about a few of you using that and I thought someone said 6 quarts.

Also while on the topic is there anything else that I should have done while it's in the shop?

Thanks in advance.

I've had too luck for the year that I've had RP in my rear diff and M6 trans.

Most important thing is to ready your owners manual for capacities and also to make sure whatever specs of fluid you need are met.
