Mein Auto: 2007 550i
transmission pan and sleeve

I bought a 2007 550i almost 2 years ago and it only has 62,000 miles and have had to pour money into it every time I turn around. Now the dealer after getting the message my transmission had a malfunction they claim I now need a transmission pan and sleeve. I took it to dealer last year the week of thanksgiving because it was jerking when it shifted and I didn't get it back until 6 weeks later with them stating their was no computer patch for it. Now they want $1600 to fix. Who else besides a dealer is an authorized BMW repair shop?
They have also said I can't drive the car and I live over 2 hours away from closest dealer/service place.

The same thing happened to me and it cost a few hundred to change. The fluid is pretty expensive...My mechanic said that the pan cracked. The transmission now works great.
