Nigel, do not give up!!! As you have found out, there is nothing more expensive than a cheap BMW, but you have just been to bad mechanics. Peruse the UK BMW boards to see if you can get a solid recommendation of a solid mechanic who guarantees their work. To be honest you should have specified to the others that if the problem is not solved, they will not be paid, and may have some recourse through a solicitor. If the right mechanic is not nearby, have the car flat bedded where it needs to go. As mentioned, you may just need fluid change, or solenoids in the trans. In any case, the mechanics you have been taking it to are parts changers , and not qualified to work on your car. A lot of that goes on here in the US too. Good luck, and hang in there!!
