Yeah. That's why I've kept it. It still looks new even.

But it looks so friendly...
Thanks for the advice. I have used all OEM stuff except for one battery and some slotted rotors. One of the failures caused several. The oil filter housing distortion leaked oil all over the alternator about 6 months after I had replaced it and ruined the replacement. It also ruined the newish belt. The first belt broke when the idler locked up and wrapped around stuff and ruined the engine. Always something...

Hi E60 can you tell me who you sent the neighbors VB to for rebuilding having problem finding a source. I understand you don't live in the US but if the place you used did a good job who cares where they are. Thanks

In my experience the problems have always been related to the valve body and solenoids.

I would first check that the car has the correct fluid level in the transmission. There are many posts to show you how to do this.

I suggest this because in my car when i bought it, it was very low on fluid. I filled it and removed the fault code and was able to drive the car working properly if i drove it like my wife does.
But if i put my foot into it, it would click back to safety mode again. I would then remove the fault code and drive like my wife again

please check your fluid, remove the codes and see what happens
if still faulty then the next step will be your valve body, solenoids, filter and fluid.

I'm not aware of an electric pump in these transmissions
