Mein Auto: e38 750iL
I am still speculating. but signs are pointing more and more to tranny failure.

this car has been the primary mode of transport for me and, on longer trips, my reliability is a concern. I love the bmw BUT there is nobody nearby who can service it. this indy has told me he can install a tranny for about $750 but i do worry about being stuck in the same position (minus $1700) if the used tranny fails. I didn't realize this was a weak spot for the e39.
