530xi 2007 model - transmission failure

hi all,

I'm new on this forum,and i'm so happy to belong. There's nothing better for people like us in far away Africa.
I have a 530xi 2007 model ,and its actually been a fantastic to drive. recently i've had issues on the screen such as:

1. Head unit not programmed correctly
2. Transmission malfunction(drive moderately) and the car starts dragging on acceleration
3. AWD and DSC malfunction
4. servotronic malfunction

All these problems seem enourmous , and i think i may have given the car to a quack for service.
Can someone please help me with these issues,especially the transmission and the servotronic issues, as the car is virtually undriveable and the steering has become very stiff all of a sudden. thank you all for having me.

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved this over to the 5 series forum, you will get more help in here. You need to get the diagnostic codes read to figure out what the issues are. Start there and let us know.
