I have read recently that BMW automatic transmissions are prone to failure. In the recent Roundel, Mike Miller recommends always buying an extended warranty if the car has an automatic, since you will almost certainly use it. Does anyone on this board have any personal experience with failure of the the ZF transmission in the 540iA?
