When fluid is oxidized, instead of renewing ATF fluid at cost of $30-$100, you simply renew or replace the whole Transmission at a cost of about $7500-$8500. DON'T BELIEVE A DAMN THING BMW TELLS YOU! Their fluids need just as much service as does an old GM Cavalier or Toyota Corolla!
they told me that replacement of power steering rack will be $1760 yous you are right this is not a date, this is a 4 digit price. The part is like 250 and couple of hours of work. have no idea where they get those prices. Their part department wanted 520 for the power steering pump just for the part. I bought one from AutoZone for 140 with good warranty . And the BMW sells the old pump LF20 which is known to fail in the shaft.
