I would have to interject here by saying I disagree with the clutch pack theory. I could see where that would come into play if the symptoms were under load or after heavy driving (increased heat) and because the surface area of the new clutch pack is smaller, it is not able to withstand the heat and power. With the symptoms happening in the morning when first leaving with the trans fluid still cold, I would have to say there is a valve body issue or a fluid pressure problem. Now this could lead to a failed clutch pack. I could see that the clutch pack does need an upgrade but I think there is an underlying issue that some regional BMW NA master tech is covering up for now. Knowing ZF's history and the problems that they have had, my opinion is that there is a culprit elsewhere. Just my two cents.
