Thanks for the information. It's at the dealership today. They say it looks like it will need a new (rebuilt) transmission. We have the extended warranty so it is covered. They say they have to first “jump through the BMW hoops” with diagnostics before BWM will OK the new transmission. They gave us a loaner (an X3) and said it should be done in three days.
I’m not happy about it breaking but it looks like the BMW service department is going to save the day.
