My Ride: 330 CiC, 330i
Coincidently my wife's car is an Audi Allroad with the 5HP19. Having the diagnostic software for both cars, and able to see what the TC was doing with respect to input/output speeds, it was interesting to see that the Audi setup with the TC is completely different to the BMW. The BMW is a lot smoother to drive, but you don't feel like you have a direct connection between your right foot and the driven wheels like you do in the Audi. Our Audi was having some TC slippage issues soon after we bought it (about 120,000 km) and fluid changes every 10,000 km since has eliminated the problem.
