    Any members have problems with the CVT? There seem to be many internet complaints.

    I think the problem is that BMW saying the CVT fluid is life-time. But the document which I found on the internet says:
    "10. Drain & Refill
    A refill of the transmission oil is necessary every 45.000 km" .
    It's appx - 30K miles

    Sorry, I could not attach a pdf file. Somehow the max size for this type of files on this forum is 19KB and mine is almost 2 MB.
    BTW. Extremely interesting document.:)

    BMW actually reccomends the fluid to be changed at ever inspection service. And let me tell you, it sucks to do.
