SMG Pump @ 27k, Red Cog 'O Death
Driving as usual until I pulled up to a stop light, RCD popped up stating a transmission malfunction, the car went into N and shut off. Pushed the on/off button 4 or 5 times before it would start so that I could get it out of the intersection. Luckily I was only a few miles to local dealer, limped it there and virtually dead sticked it into the service department. 2008 M5 with 27k, warranty expired on 3/13/12, SA assured me that they/BMW would goodwill it. I guess its the best of a bad situation. SMG pump.
On my way to the dealer the car would just pop into N then when I came to a stop it would shut off. X5 3.5d is not a bad loaner.
