    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Around 2+ months ago I had a transmission fluid refresh. I'll note that it wasn't a full flush but an emptying of as much fluid as possible, replacing the filter/pan and then refilling with fluid back to max level. All has been completely well since then but just 2 days ago, I immediately...
