My 2007 E63 with 65k miles clunks pretty bad only when downshifting to first only when warm.
Otherwise it works great
No codes or other issues
Is this likely the mechatronics issue I read about or something else?
What do you think should be my repair steps?
Thanks!

What is it Auto, Manual etc?
With that sort of mileage it's more likely just in need of a fluid and pan/filter change, that being said, check your voltages at the engine terminals and also while you or your mechanic are under the car, check the guibo joint (or Flex Disc) for signs of cracking/wear.

Not knowing the mileage, it could be low on fluid, 1/2 qt. makes a difference in shifting. If you are over 50k miles, I would drain the fluid & refill with new fluid.

The bidding is pretty dead. Only the second or third 6er of that generation to go on BAT. Don’t think that crowd realizes the caliber of car it is. Just had mine fully detailed today and will never stop loving it.

For my 1st gear downshift issue,
I drained the trans fluid and refilled fluid and now all is great!
Shifts like a dream
