I hope y’all get it! With the least amount of stress. [emoji51] GL
Haha! Thanks Happy. We'll get it. The packaging of the diesels is just crazy tight. Plus as I said, we're working slow. Is what it is.

I sourced an original owner X5 80k miles transmission for 1600 plus 400 in parts from FCP. I have added 25k miles since last year's replacement with no issues! I am currently at 162k right now.

When I first drove the X5 with a working transmission, I was blown away how the transmission shift so smooth and quick for an automatic transmission.
That's what I'm hoping for DeafM5. Thanks for the inspiration.
