Transmission problems

I have a 1999 BMW 328I, Took my car in for service and to have the power steering hoses replaced, before hand the car was running great but for some odd reason when I got it back and drove off the lot my transmission light on and the car started running like crap. It makes a noise and it takes a long time to get out of 1st gear but after 1st gear she drives fine, I took it back 10 minutes later and they hooked up the diag scanner and said I need a new tranny but what I don't understand is why before taking it to the lot I got the car from the car was running good and after they worked on it, not it won't move. dose anyone have any idea what could be going on with this machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to United Bimmer.

Thats a pretty shitty situation. I think they may have tampered with it. Go somewhere else and get a second opinion. Having the OBD system scanned for trouble codes will help diagnose the problem.
