It pays to drain, refill, drive a bit and then repeat. This helps to replace fluid trapped in torque converter. Add another litre if you drop pan to replace filter. Not sure if this is really necessary as mine was spotless at 150km but wasn’t a difficult or expensive job.
On type of fluid I swapped to a full synthetic which met the ATF spec. This was on my gen3 NA.
