Out driving and enjoying the beautiful sunny day here in Seattle then Gong, yellow warning message "Transmission Malfunction", "drive moderately, service asap...."
So I kept on driving, then gong - red message"Transmission Malfunction", crap, this time the message stayed on so I started heading towards Bellevue BMW. Downshift, nothing, then bam, downshift gear engaged about 8 seconds later. Worried now engine will quit sometime soon right in the middle of highway.......
I made it to the dealership, parked the beast, wrote up a drop off ticket for service request ASAP tomorrow.
Will keep you all posted. I already miss my beast.

Not good sign that went from yellow to red and stayed on. Besides electronics, there is certainly a mechanical problem here. I suspect SMG pump pressure loss, either due to the pump itself or some solenoid
losing pressure and pump oil level and pressure dropping suddenly.
I think Alan's guess is not correct. Faulty sensors give intermitent problems and not of such severity. I think you are in trouble my friend Dan. Not money wise since you are covered, but certainly you will miss

You know, I almost hope it is a mechanical problem if you can get it fixed under warranty. A co-worker of mine has a 2007 M5 and his clutch/transmission went out last year - just before his new car warranty ended. So he got a new clutch, etc. for nothing. Otherwise it would have been about $4K. The throwout bearing went out and that made it eat other stuff.
Now he is set for a while. I hope similar good luck finds you Dan.
