Retail price of only the mechatronics unit. Will have labour and associated parts on top of that.

Donít think so. My car software has been overwritten to eliminate that variable - problem still exists

I just find that hard to believe ive never head of such a high cost on this platform. Even a blown engine isnt a 10k fix.

Mechatronics is the TCU and valve block all in one.
These are very expensive gearboxes, quite literally the retail cost of a brand new one is about $25-30k.

My fingers are crossed for you buddy. I work on these cars and there is only so much that ISTA can do in terms of troubleshooting automatic and double clutch transmissions. Once that is all exhausted it comes down to individual experience with these scenarios.

Have you reached out to other reputable MHD tuners and BMW specialists from USA for example, who nay have encountered this issue before?

This type of fault comes about due to a communication disruption - lost signal, transmitting control unit fails to send out expected signal, etc.

I had a 92 AWD turbo ford TX3 back in the day. Replacement gearbox for those from ford was 15k back in 199x.

At the end of the day a used box is 3k guys dont sweat it.

What we could be doing as a community is looking for one for @aaron_

We are a community that should lead by example for others to follow.

Aaron if you need parts and need alternative options for pricing around, contact Michael at Welch Auto Parts for a quote. He's on google directory.

I'd highly recommend getting a quote from the dealer only(diagnosis costs are unavoidable I think) once they tell you what's wrong you can make better plans

Some questions to ask them:
- Are they able to communicate with the DKG?
- If yes, are they able to successfully execute any/all service functions?
- Any live data parameters missing?

No offense Aaron but this car may be in the wrong hands. It should go to a specialised bmw serviceshop in my opinion if they are taking their sweet ass time. Surely the problem can not be that bad. Any updates? I'd call them everyday until I get updates.

So this 10k part figure is the equivalent of pricing up a new crate engine from the dealership in terms of obviously going to be an insane and inflated price and really a whole new box is around 3k?
