    05 330xi Hello sorry if this has already been asked.

    Hello everyone, I have a slight problem..... Currently my BMW 325ci has a lot of slop sideways in gears 1-4. Gear 5 and reverse don't seem to have this issue as much probably because they are used less? There is a slight up and down movement as well. I have been doing some research and I...
