You need to take it to a tranny shop that actually knows what they're doing. Don't take it to a dealer - they will say: "sorry it's broken we need to replace it will cost $5000"

As others have said... sell 328i buy 335i.

The E90 M3 has a naturally aspirated (NA) V8. The 328i has a NA I6 (I for Inline). Neither use an intercooler; however both (and all BMWs for that...

Unless you have installed an after-market turbo, a 328i with the N52 engine does not have or need an intercooler.

So, the OP is driving a car that is as fast and handles almost as well as the NSX I drove in the 90's, carries 4 people in the snow, and claims BMWs aren't "sporty" enough.

Bigger is not always better. My wife's 328d has 17" wheels and the ride is quite nice. My older 335d has 18" and the ride is at the limit of my comfort zone on bad roads.
