Whats on your running list of things to do?

Hello all!

I recently sold my barbera 750LI so the list is much shorter but since then I have been driving the blue 750I. It has come to my attention little things need to be done... well and one big.

My running list is the following...

Sunroof will not close on first try and will cancel like there is something in the way.
Passenger Front window goes up/down but when being rolled up sounds like its going to shatter.
Passenger Front Door handle sticks and door will not shut and will open - rear passenger is beginning to do the same.
Tonight I went to open hood and it appears the hood cable has failed...

Now for the big one... I had the transmission in the barbera LI replaced under warranty at 85,000 miles. Now the blue 750I is kicking 70-80 mph when letting off of gas and occasionally when slowing down. So its time to get that transmission replaced as well... Luckily theres warranty left.

So theres my running list what is yours?

On that transmission that's kicking you may just need new transmission fluid, especially if you're leaking.
