my friend had a 3 series with transmission problems, it was an auto, and whenever he shifted into reverse there was like a 3 or 4 second hesitation before it finally kicked into reverse. and a few months later he couldnt get it into reverse at all. be sure to get the mechanic to check it out.
whens the last time the trans fluid was replaced? thats a good place to start
