    Faulty Transmission
    « on: 2017-10-03 23:08:22 »

    I have a 2012 GTL, and when I accelerate while in 5th gear it pops in and out of gear.  Had the dealer look at it while doing the 36,000mi maintenance, and I now need a new transmission. :o
    Since they no longer make the version I have, BMW is pulling one from the production line, and shipping it to California.  Has anyone else had a similar problem?  If this is a chronic thing I may have to go back to the RT.

        I also had the same problem on my 2012 GTL in 2014. I got a new gearbox.

          How many miles have you put on the new one?  At $6400 is is not something I want to replace again.  LOL
