Had it towed to BMW of Rochester (West Herr) and they confirmed it is the transmission... the guy asked if I was sitting down and then proceded to tell me a new transmission was $8238. I think I shit then, but can't remember because I blacked out...

Anyway, I got home and called BMWNA to see if there was anything they could do (it's got 87k on the clock and I've owned the car for, like, 70 days... NYS Lemon Law states that any car over 80k has a warranty of 30 days/1000 miles) and they kindly told me to go pound sand. I bought the car from Elite Auto Solutions and have called the owner, Chris, a bunch of times... he said he was out of town and reminded me I was out of warranty, but he may be able to help with finding something to get the car running.

While this thing worked, I loved it... my favorite car so far, but dying in less than 3 months... not so good. How often do transmissions irrepairably fail on BMWs under 90k miles...?
