"Is there a particular reason why the orings would go bad? Would it help if we change the fluid sooner?

Also, do you park the car mainly outdoors or indoors usually? Leaking transmission is my worst nightmare.. I had to let go one of my cars a in the past because of this (it was more expensive to fix the transmission than to replace that car).

BMW is really bad with their gaskets and they leak all the time. If you ever owned a bmw you would know lol. Changing the fluid it sooner will not help this issue.Transmission fluid on these car is a light brown amber color it looks nothing like your tipical red trans fluid. Replacing the sealing sleeve and pan gasket will most likely run you like $800 at the dealer. Also they will need to replace any fluid that you have lost and the fluid it self is very expensive.
