Major 6mt Transmission Fluid/Oil Leak

This is the second time this happens in less than 2 months. The First time it was the rear main seal. and it took for ever to fix. This time who Knows what it is, if not the same thing, but tomorrow it going back to the Dealer. Anyone else had this problem??? Just sucks!!!! Car only has 2500 miles and it is only three months old.

After about two weeks of trying to figure out what was wrong with the Tranny, BMW Finally decided to replace the Whole Transmission, they had no other solution since they kept replacing seals and they could not stop the Leaking. I told them from the start "Replace the tranny, I don't want Patch work". They Finally Listened.

Prob a misaligned machine job. Gaskets can't fix that, gotta replace.

I hope it all works out. GL
