e92 N54 335i new transmission..

i brought my car in last week for fixing gasket leak and i told my SA that shifting from 1-2-3 is kinda jerky(auto tranny). they tested and called me saying they emailed bmwna and approved to get me a new tranny from germany in 2 weeks.. wtf. serisly? is replacing the whole tranny a good idea?lol. to me it seems that repalcing the tranny for free is a good deal. but any problem comes after replacing tranny?
im kinda a car newb~

also. does anyone has a good shop for mecedes in west toronto or mississauga area Canada.~~~ thanks so very much..~~

The only problem with this is that it doesnt happen as often as it should.


Just make sure you bring it back to the dealer immediately if there is any hiccups with the transmission...

Hahaha yea it sucks that you need to get your car in the shop for the time but they are making it right and you have no control over the so-call "defect." And there will be no problems after changing the tranny so RELAX!!!!!!

not surprised
my local dealer wanted to replace my entire tranny for $8,000
Bought a used torque converter, and the transmission is shifting perfectly again.
