M3 SMG Problems
I have an 04 M3 convertible w/smg since day 1 I have had a number of issues with the SMG, never really took much notice as it was always a warranty item with the awsome BMW warranty coverage. ....just prior to meeting my 100k miles warranty expiration I noticed a slipping of sorts with it yet when at the deaer we could not duplicate issue. Now 3500 miles later their 1st diaganosis was a leak in the SMG Pump hose, fixed the hose but not the problem, next the SMG Pump @ $3000 for the part alone I was torn. My advisor who has always been awesome, got ahold of their Rep got them to pay for the part and all labor except $1,100.00 Done but guess what....The computer wont recognize the new codes ( I think that is what she said) Now they say I need a whole new tranny due to extended time with improper pump function or something like that. She is again trying to reach her Rep its been their garage now for 3 weeks I have been patient. What is anyone with some insights thoughts?.....
