I'd make sure they are doing a full and complete job- new trans, new torque converter, etc. With a written warranty (ie Work Order) IN YOUR NAME.

I'd be OK with an all new BMW remanned tranny with the two year BMW-backed warranty.

You're lucky

Yes I've talked with the BMW dealership. The contract states that the used lot is required to fix the vehicle, actually BMW told me they didn't even need to talk to me...go figure. I don't know the legal aspect of this, but I think it is all under the lemon law.

Yeah good idea, don't want a salvaged trany or refurbished. I don't know yet who is doing the install, I hope BMW.
