Ask your dealer if he's going to pay for new trans when this one fails ?

Then ask him the definition of "lifetime". Btw....there is no such thing as "lifetime" according to BMW. When it dies is the end of it's lifetime....and guess who pays for it ???

Do yourself (and the trans) a favor....... have it serviced asap.
