I'm not surprised to hear this. I'm still waiting to hear from my SA, however I'll touchbase with him tomorrow (friday).

The part numbers are available here:

As Roman said it may be that BMW is more inclined to repair DCT transmissions off-site.
Good to know that at least the parts are available, even if BMWNA requires a full change out of the trans. Folks may need these in the future (or maybe now by the sound of your post).

Thanks. It's a little worrisome, however I haven't seen any fluid under the car (thankfully). This seems to be a slow seepage rather than a massive failure.

I'm also thankful that I'm still covered under the original warranty.
