unless you have $7000k sitting aroundand don'tknow how to spend it.
2nd and fifth gear are slipping and the pump is cavitating noticably. My local tech and Heishman are quoting $5000 to $7000 for a reman trans from BMW (out of Illinois, BTW). Does anybody know of a TRUSTWORTHY transmission shop in the DC metro area that can handle the ZF 5HP30 automatics? I'd rather rebuild my own for less $$$$ than spend $5000.
Any help really would be appreciated...
I am disturbed at the high number of posts regarding the 5 speed automatic. Perhaps if enough people are effected, a campaign with BMW (together with a mention of potential litigation) will catch their attention.
