Well, I went to the dealership and it appears
the tranny is locked up. The input shaft doesn't move
a lick and the output shaft moves a little.
The dealership wanted too much as you can imagine.
I move the car to a independent service provider that
only services BMWs. They have a good reputation and are well known for their service and ability to work with customers.
I spoke to them and they are on the search for another M5 tranny. They told me if we have to, their is a shop in North Carolina that rebuilds BMW trannys.
Do any of you know of anyone that I can buy a M5 tranny off of or do you recommend a different type of tranny (6 speed maybe)?
Is rebuild a good alternative?
let me know
