Tranny Update

I took my 03 e66 to the dealer for a second time. Told them after the guibo(dont know if the spelling is right) replacement my baby had lost some of its power. There was also hesitation when i stomp the gas. I had a long list of things i wanted to get fixed.


wind noise from the sun roof = They replaced the seal and now no noise.


drivers side headlight washer not working = replaced nozzle assembly


Runflats hum when driving = wasn't the tires, replaced rear wheel bearing. no more hum.


air condition blower goes up and down on its own= some type of resistor behind the dash.


Tranny Shifts funny, no power, clunk when going into reverse= found a front seal leak.

Tranny fluid low(due to the leak I guess)= filled tranny fluid.

Of course they did a reprogram to top it off.

After three days at the dealer all i can say is WOW!!!!!!!!! No more reverse clunk and the power is amazing. The shifts are a lot smoother. I'm so glad to have my baby back to the
way is was when I fell in luv with it. I also shot my SA 50 bucks. I'm trying to buttter him up for a hazy headlight swap.


Random thought from nm1_stunna


Now that it is known to be Thousand Island Dressing, why does McDonalds still call it "Special Sauce?"

you can always make him feel happy by giving him a $50.00 Ammex. I gave him a Henessy before and he hooked it up.
