Hey All just wanted to say Hello. I've got a few question about my ride that hopefully I can get some feedback on... I have a 545i 05 v8 and I'm getting the flat tire message in the I-drive. I'm also having problems with the transmission( i think). I'm getting very little usuage out of 2 & 3 gear. 1 gear is fine then 2nd gear seems to jerk into then boost out into 3rd gear. that usally about 40mph so in 3rd gear between 35-40 miles and hour it seems to be hesitating. anything over 45 it's just fine and of course on the highway it's money. So do you think that it's a system timing issue or is the tranny shot??? anybody with any suggestions I'll be happy to hear some feedback.. Thanks All

The transmission should have a fluid & filter change around 80,000miles and every 30,000 thereafter, if its gone over the 100,000 mark you must get it done as the internals will start to wear.
