Yeah, I have a dip stick, and I recently had the fluid changed, so its fine.
I agree. The auto trans in BMW's in general are junk.
I've been driving BMW's for over 20 years, and one thing I experienced their auto trans is junk just like any other brand.
I never had any problems with BMW manual transmissions. They are like bullet proof! I had never replaced one.
Oh, well, i'm tired of rebuilding the trans. This car has become a money pit. I will put this piece of sh*t up for sale.
