Trans issues 330Xi etc
I'm looking to buy a 330Xi and it has a trans issue, not like the others on here. The owner says that after it sits for awhile at work for the day or over night. It wont go into gear forward or reverse but if he lets it warm up for about five mins it goes into gear and shifts fine. has anybody else have had issues like this also there is a service bulletin SI B 24 07 03 Automatic Transmissions April 2008 Technical Services that states similar problem but its only a 2 -30 sec's delay.
This Service Information bulletin supersedes SI B24 07 03 dated November 2004.
