While I don't have alot or , should say any experiance with the BMW transmissions specifically. The engine drives the automatic trans fluid pump. When you are going at a given speed say 60 mph then kick the engine into nuetral you slow the pump down. However as you coast along in nuetral the internals of the trans are still going at speed driven by the driveshadt but now with reduced pressure from the pump. In short bursts I dont suppose it will hurt but I'm tld by my friends in the trans rebuild profession not to do this . Just something to consider .
Yes I am awaiting for JFOJ to pop his nogen in here and help, WHERE ARE YOU JF!!! Why oh why are you not at my instant informational disposal!
