What year is it? Thats important
Start by getting a service history. See what has been done, and compare to a list of common problems to see what may fail in the future. I can provide you said list if i knew the model year.
Transmissions are extremley complicated and if one thing isnt working right then it throws the whole thing off. Get the OBD system scanned for codes first. Most auto parts stores do this for free, and not all transmission codes trigger a CEL. It could be something as little as a speed sensor or throttle position sensor going bad.
How low is the milage? Because BMW transmissions are supposed to last at least 100,000 miles before any issues.
