No it was happening before the fluid change. In fact the transmission didnt feel right in all gears before the fluid change. Shifting got very smooth afterwards except for the reverse gear. BMW tech noted it in the report and his Recommendation was to replace the transmission with an estimated cost of ~$5000!!

So the mechatronic is something i can replace without taking the pan off?
