Maintenance/Break-in should be the same as the new car recommendations for a replacement or rebuild. Download the guide from BMW's owners circle site.
Thank you for being the only one to answer my prayers lol
I've been searching around for distributors of spare parts for the transmission but I haven't seem to have found anyone. Do you know of anyone? I've searched from tischer bmw to the actual dealership. The dealership won't sell me single parts such as a bearing, synchro etc. Without having it fixed there. I find 2000 repulsive just to throw a new part in when a new transmission costs a few hundred more.
I figured the recommendations of the break-in to be somewhat the same but I just wanted to make sure thank you!

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
