I then heard a High rev----------........instant tranny burned.....went into Trans Fail Safe mode......damn thing was suppose to put me in 3rd or 4th gear but it didnt...I couldnt go in reverse or forward. I had to tow the car.......Service guys told me that there were burned pieces at the bottom of the tranny pan How did I burn tranny? espec @ 5 MPH?....I was getting quotes from BMW 7500k range............Dont be guessing that its just going to fix itself...........for peeps sakes take it to the mech.

Yea the bmw people are telling me not to change my tranny oil and filter, but im getting the shudder, and i dont have any service info from the last owner, i think imma just go for it, what do you guys think?
