Hey all! I think it's been like two years since I've posted here.
Turned out I did need a new transmission, and after $3k parts and labor, I was still having problems, so I sold the car. I'm currently in a 2007 Mazda 3 Grand Touring and looking to get back in the Bimmer community.
I'm thinking of an E46, but I'm not sure yet. My wife wants me to get a 128i.
I remember when my old friend Rooz jumped from E36 to E46 he was happier than a pig in sh**... I hope I can do the same soon.
Anyways, just wanted to say hi! Hopefully I'll be around for a while..
