You need to identify the return line from the trans cooler back to the trans, then detach it, hook a longer hose to it that allows you to bring it out from under the car, and up higher then the trans. Then push a funnel into the hose, and fill away. Not a fast job, but WAY better than trying to fill via the skinny dipstick tube.
EDIT: talking to my local transmission shop guy today ( I almost wrote "trans guy" !) he said he had done a Surf this morning, simply using a funnel into the dip stick, and managed to get 7 litres in , in only about one minute. He didn't see what the fuss was.
