but it does...it did on both my E46s and also on my E92. They all needed about a pint+ per year.

That's happened to me many times but without a cup in place. I'm fearful that it will occur though so I may look into locking it down 1 day. If I figure out a solution I'll post up.

Your software may be in need of a reflash...or you may need a new tranny. Dealer is best bet for a sure fix and I'd guess they'll start with reprogramming the software. GL.
