    does anybody know of a decent automatic gearbox specialist around the epsom area in surrey, or in surrey in general, preferably a garage that knows bm gearboxes
    also what is a rough cost to have a E39 525tds auto gearbox oil and filter change, mine went a bit funny the other week, and now it is driving ok, but when pulling away on a hill or incline it judders on intial pull away but then is ok.

    so was thinking maybe a oil and filter change would help

    thanks

    A good indy will be fine for fluid and filter changes only

    Nearest one I know to you who others have praised is

    MJF Engineering
    Rear Of Unit 1a Oak Down Horsham Road Beare Green
    Beare Green Surrey RH5 4PF
    Tel: 01306 713232

    Never used him but called once as was in a tight corner and on basis of conversation only he seemed both knowledgable and trustworthy.

    Dont know re gearbox specailists though further down south in Sussex Bexhill Gearbox centre may be if use if the worst happens I know my indy uses them http://bexhillgearboxes.com/services.html

    No prob's at all - glad to help.

    If you do take the plunge then maybe post your experience(s).

    I find this webiste very useful for garage reviews - just be mindful of one off glowing reports or isolated rants & treat accordingly.

    Hey, I know it's been a while, but thought I would update on my progress with my auto gearbox problems, on recommendation from a few
    people I took my 525tds auto MJF engineering in Beare Green, Mark who runs the place was fantastic, let's you in the workshop when he is working and shows you what he is doing, I can't recommend him enough, he carrys out all sorts of work on BMWs and I would def use him again!!
    Now with my auto box, oil and filter were changed, but we found metal fillings in the sump, so it's gonna have to be changed, but is still drivable, so I am going to get him to change the box just after Christmas

    Good to here my untested 3rd party recommendation was sound - thanks for update.

    May be worth keeping an eye on ebay and speaking to salvage experts in meantime but be careful not to by more problems.
