Our BMW is making a banging sound in the transmission when we excellerate. It can make the car shudder. With only 45,000 miles on the car, the idea of replacing the transmission rather unappealing. Any idea what the cost of replacing the transmission is? Also, the warranty expired, but is there a chance BMW will stand behind their product. I thank you for your time and consideration. Warm regards, Mark
