Hi Guys,

Sold my BMW a while back to get into stocks so havent been around the forums much but I need some help finding a cheap used auto transmission for my moms 2001 325i. It wont go in reverse and rebuilding it is gonna be really pricey. If anyone has one for sale from a scrap car or knows of anywhere I can go to get one please message me. Thanks.

Hi Guys,

Anyone have anything?

2001+UP 325I Auto Transmission (Would prefer 02+ as they are less problematic).

I'm going to help you out man.

You dont need to replace the transmission, all you need is a new reverse solenoid ($250 at the dealer) labor will be about 3-3.5 hours for a trained mechanic or a good day if you want to do it yourself.

Its not hard, its been covered many time on forums as its a very common issue.

Unfortunately the tranny isnt a GM its not the soltenoid. Its gonna need a new tranny or rebuild. Again if anyone has a Tranny out fo a 2001-2005 325I please let me know id rather do a direct swap than a rebuild. Thanks everyone.
