On my E53 30d the TC was £250 so not that pricey. That was for OEM new.

Surprised but pleasantly maybe there is quite a bit of work fitting it which bumps the price up ? :thumbsup:

It's been taken away today. I was able to reverse off the drive but no forward gears at all.
Let's see what the diagnosis is.

They haven't had a chance to properly diagnose the problem yet but just a thought - I'll have to replace the rear main seal too as that leaks a bit..
