Mein Auto: 740I
I would suggest checking your shocks, rear control arm bushings etc. Anything is the suspension can set off the fail safe. I had this problem before. Found the solution because i was behind my wife in the car one day and noticed the real wheel had extra bounce to it. Once under the car i found out the problem. Rear control arm bushing was shot. Hope this helps. The transmissions on these cars rarely have problems. Mine has 330K and still going strong.
