I'm new here...seeking information. I need to tow a 2700 lb trailer approx 4000 miles annually, but I don't want to drive an SUV or pickup. 270 lbs of tongue weight, plus another 250 lbs of gear. Mostly flat freeway travel. I presume that aux tranny cooler and temp gauge would be wise...feedback on this? Does anyone have first hand knowledge about the merits/demerits of using a 325iT for towing?
It's possible, with your overdrive off, a hope and a prayer, but that is a lot of weight to be pulling. Get yourself a chip, you're gonna need it.

Rockin the High Mileage Performance
I have a 525it bought new in 1992 and have had no problems until it reached 212,900
Miles then had to replace trans 2300
Miles ago. Now it has a difficult time shifting into 4th gear. Sometimes it just won't . Can't go Back to garage that did the repair ( out of business) found a New Mechanic that has been very helpful but we need a Trans2000 pigtail
To read the 4L30E trans. Can anyone out there help? Car is too good to give up on.! At the same time instruments ref: trans operations doesn't light up. Feels like a electrical problem as the replacement trans looks clean and good inside..! Thanks so much in advance..!
