You know, I think my tranny might be leaking as well, I thought it was motor oil, because the oil on the ground wasn't red. The color was maybe a light brown, which is the same color as motor oil can be, but the small puddle was just in front of the shifter.
Hmmm, I have a third-party warranty, so I guess I'll take it into the dealer, but I too was having issues with there being like a flat spot around 40 mph, where it wouldn't shift unless I applied much more gas. I would like to have that resolved when they fix the leak. Where is yours leaking at on the tranny? Is it a seal or something?
I wonder if I should call BMW North America, since the trans. are the same in the '04 and '05 545i, but they exclude the 2004?
Are all of these issues the same culprit, whatever that is, meaning the issues of jerkiness at acceleration, and the flatness around the 40mph mark, pointing to the same issue with the trans., whatever that might be.
