The transmissions on these cars are sealed and are a pain in the ass to have serviced. I have a 1994 BMW (Big Money Wasted) 740 iL and will never own another BMW again. If the transmission program light comes on, expect $2,800 for s new one and a thousand less for a used one. While you have the transmission down make sure to replace the main seal. You will need to do it immediately.
After finally getting the original owner's manual for the car, the Trans Program light indicates that the TCM module needs to be replaced under the hood about $1,075 from the dealer and $365 used.
