The changes in gears both up and down are very erratic, and far from normal,there is also a suspicion that the torque converter is playing up.
DTC warning light is permanently on, and is not working at all.

BMW won't touch it without a hefty diagnosis fee upfront and don't really want to know owing to the modifications.
The car was red flagged by BMW quite some time ago,and his only real option is a good indy.

The Quaife LSD has helped alot but some decent tyres should finish the job nicely.

Never argue with an idiot on the internet. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
