I have a buddy who took his 545i in last year to BMW in Long Beach for the SAME issue and they fixed a major hardware problem. They covered it under warranty but only after some fighting. I will keep you updated as to what they tell me!
What was your fluid leak? I have an oil leak; I wanna say about mid way under the car, but it's probably just in front of the shifter. I notice a little oil on the garage floor. Oil level looks kind of ok, need to look at the manual to try and find out the normal level. I haven't taken it to the dealership specifically for this yet, but just wondering.
