It was dead at 64k mi???!!! I would go to the BMW dealer and ask to speak to the service manager and ask him nicely for a good well repair, either for free or a big discount. It's not acceptable to have a BMW tranny failing at 64k mi on a $50k car (when new). BMW recommends the lifetime fluid for those cars, and i assume no one has ever worked on that tranny. I think the chances of getting a good well repair from BMW is fairly high.
