Don't blame you.. you going to check a few or just leave them alone totally?

haha.. I thought about it. I have enough things that could go wrong as it is. Adding a transmission rebuild (I've never rebuilt a transmission) would just be asking for trouble. I'm going to laugh when my "new" engine has more power than before and wears the transmission out in a month..... (not likely, but who knows at this point)

A guy over on bimmerforums pulled his engine as well.. and rebuilt transmission. Some decent info on the transmission rebuild over there
