Find a BMW independent garage or reputable trans shop to diagnose your issue. It doesn't sound like a simple fix, possibly related to the shift linkage, but you will need to know what your looking at to repair.


Go to and look in the forums there's a bunch of people there that had the same issues and they can help you I do the same thing. It could be inexpensive or you may need your whole transmission replaced but they will be able to give you tips to try it before you take it to an expensive shop and spend $3,000 on something you could have spent 250 on.
