X5M F85 2015, 67000KM, possible or highly likely transmission failure or issue.

for three weeks i have been having very harsh shifting (downshift) from 3-2 in automatic mode, sport mode, coasting, braking etc.

went out with bmw master tech, he said it sounds mechanical related, booked for the 22nd of this month, more to follow. he did say this does not sound like a software or relearn issue, nor does it sound like a transfer case issue with softer winter tires, he said it is shifting "harsh" and that it is not normal at all.

2015, 2nd owner, have had it for about 36000km, got it with 30k on it. just fyi. i do not drive this vehicle hard at all, i have done zero launch control on it since i own it.

this truck, with the many issues i have had, has been the worst bimmer in my fleet as of now.

harsh downshifting from 3-2, seems to slam and not rev match road and engine speed.

more to come.

67000km seems like a lot of driving!
