I was just going to post to OP sorry to hear you are having hard time with the car but Damn page 12 lol.....

was also going to say that is a complete rip off for those repairs. its like parts are 50$, but the labor is 900 bucks.

I feel you OP on the pain but it is hit and miss. my 335i NEVER gave me any problems, whatsoever, zero issues. smiles everytime I drove it. i am guessing it is too late to return it, but if you want to and can, check my car lol.... someone is going to snatch it in few days perhaps.

Doesn't even begin to describe my feelings towards this car.

Housing gasket is leaking $1158.87
Transmission leak is $984.54

Anyone know where I can replace or get these things fixed for cheap?

As of right now, this is the first and last bmw I will buy.
Umm I usually go to ltbmw they're pretty affordable for me..most of the repairs I get I compare to ltbmw and they are always cheaper.

Hope you know how to code it as well, or your battery is going to explode.

OP, put aside 200$/month for out of warranty repairs/incl. maintenance. I have a N52 one and I am barely even at 150$/month.... Frankly BMW/ZF suck at making gaskets.
