tried it in sport first, drives perfect, all gears change the way they supposed to, and in manual same thing, all of them work up and down, then I tried it in reg. aut. mode and it drove really nice too, but the whole drive was around 10 miles, hopefully this will help you(and me) sort the problem out
one more thing, I thought these transmissions should have a lifetime oil, I thought I read that in the manual, u know better, I am waiting for ur reply on fire!
I can't thank u enough man!
Hi Zee

Did you do a hill start ?????,,,,,,sorry i meant to say to you to pull away in manual on third gear to see if there is any slip??? sorry about that i meant to say earlier

Well the gears are working fine by the sounds of things,,so no probs with the gearbox, the gearbox oil has a lifetime fill, BMW class a lifetime fill and a cars lifetime span as 100ks, this is where the life of the car ends, tell me was the car still moving when you reversed it and then selected the forward gear ??

Come back to me
