Good morning -
I actually got it thru my credit union - but I checked with BMW and it is accepted at all the dealerships - it cost me $2700 with a $100 deductible

Just shy of 61k since ordered new - aug 08 production.

About 5 track weekends thus far with 3 more planned for next year. Served as daily driver for 4.5 years commuting in and out of DC before becoming a weekend and sunny day option.

Intermittent tail light malfunction, battery replacement and passenger door lock actuator failed. Also swapped steering wheel trim when it peeled. 1st to 2nd gear still grinds with quick shifts at the top of the rev range so I avoid 7k + rev shifts from 1-2. Otherwise tires, brakes and oil.

Still love the car - just dropped some cash to put a mpe and zcp wheels on her.

Second gear syncros are done if you are getting this grid. I did all the time on my 08, had the dealer look at it twice and they finally replaced the transmission, $50 deductible...gotta love CPO.

Also switching fluid helps a ton.

Thanks,
I am on Redline MTL and have noticed a difference in shifting in the new transmission. I did drive the car with the OEM fluid for 600 miles and I was still getting the same crap shifts I was before, hence why I decided to switch oils. I will never look back, although I might try Redline D4, as it better matches the OEM viscosity.

Manual, not really just changed the o2 sensors a few times, other than that I'm glad it's still running great.

I've had the dealer look at my syncro grind more than once and they say it's either normal or they can't reproduce even when I show it to them. They insist it's a clutch problem instead and will not work on it (under warranty still) since they say it's a clutch blah blah blah since that's not covered. "dealer" wipes hands...done
No new tran for me it seems.

This is how I did it when I bought my car with 52k miles:

1. 6 months after purchase I complained about bad shifting at high rpm, dealer looked at service records and found the transmission did not have its oil changed...EVER! (except for the break in period). Oil changed for free

2. 1 year later from #1 I went back to dealer to complain once again the transmission was not shifting properly. Mind you I had installed a UUC SS and problem still did not go away. SA documented the problem and had a tech drive it. Tech confirmed notchy and hard to engage transmission. Prognosis? Come back in a week and have the foreman drive it.

3. 1 week later I had the foreman drive the car with me in it (and with the SS installed as well) and foreman confirmed gears are hard to engage. SA initiated paperwork for BMW to review and a few days later I get a call that a new transmission was approved.

The point is, I was persistent in documenting the problem with them and they saw that it was an on-going issue and not a one time thing. I would HIGHLY suggest trying a new dearer in a few months and complain about gears being hard to engage and grinding while shifting.

Hope this helps!

Great to hear about more cars rolling over the 100k mark and still operating reliably.
