I had my Mechatronic module replaced last October on my 2004 at around 50,000 miles and it was $4,100; extended warranty paid for that w/$100 deductible. That stopped all the issues I was having.

But for me it was really not confidence inspiring to have that happen on a nearly $57,000 car (when new). And it seems quite common to our E53's.

I really wanted a new E70 but because of this experience I'm just hanging on to my paid for 2004 until my remainder of warranty expires in 2 years. Had I not had the warranty I would have dumped it. Oh, and my Indy mechanic figured out my transmission problem where the dealer couldn't after multiple visits. A trusted mechanic is best bet and without it I wouldn't continue to own this car.
