After driving about 25 km, the transmission went into limp mode and refused to shift. After the car cooled down I took it back to the shop immediately. they said it was a computer malfunction and had the car completed by 11 am the following morning. Pr
transmission shifts are very sluggish when the car is cold. Hard shifts when starting from low speed
Clunking noise from the rear differential when changing gear (manual transmission). Replaced driveshaft and rear differential. Must have been expensive! Seems to have been a known issue with the previous generation BMW 3-series.
