    Just removed the Transmission on my automatic 2001 bmw 330i and removed the flywheel and I do not know what this Blue plastic piece is? I have looked at OEM part diagrams and can’t find it, mine seems to be slightly cracked when I removed the trans should I be concerned? photo attached:

    So, I’m doing a transmission swap and I understand that there is a lot of information about people doing already. I’ve done two months worth of research and I couldn’t find the answers I need. I have mechanical experience so I have no problem with the work I just don’t want to spend $1500 plus...

    I have a strange issue with my automatic transmission on my 2005 325i. It went into limp mode the other day, and I sort of realized a super short and strange 2nd to third gear shift.

    Hi, i decided to sign up and post this thread because i could not find the answers to my questions anywhere. I currently have a 2003 320i 5 spd manual.

    Ok so simple question. ( I think ) My friend claims he knows EVERYTHING about BMW's. As he once owned a 330 ZHP. Anyway, im a 17 year old student saving up for a 330ci. He tells me not to get a e46 because the Trannys suck. He told me the automatic tranny wont last past 120,000 miles... Is...

    Gentlemen.....I have read over many posts on here but this is my first. My son has the zf 5hp-19 in his 323ci 2000. It has very little reverse. It does back up but with any gas the rpm s go up.
