740il transmission problem slipping

Just bought a 740il 2000 and knowing it had problems with the tranny i bought it anyway and planning on getting used tranny to put in.

Bought it and drove it home since it can still move. When stopped and steped on gas the engine revs up and car starts to move really slowly. Once i get up to speed seems like the tranny is fine its only the take off is slipping.

Is this a sign of new tranny in need or could i change the filter and fluid to help the problems go away ?

Has any one out there had this problem ?

BTW just when i drove the car home for 20 min i fell in love with this beast.

Thanks In advance
