  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    On cold starts, my 318ti does not want to go forwards when you put it in drive - if you accelerate a bit it just revs in neutral (that's what it sounds like anyway). However if I put it into tiptronic manual mode and force 1st or 2nd gear the car does move forward and drives normally. Once the...

    Not long had my auto box serviced on my e91. Cut long story short, on a long’ish journey, only when I’m stationary and seems like with the heater on I get a smell of gearbox oil.
