How much does it cost to replace a BMW transmission?

I’ve been having trouble switching gears and I read online that it’s probably my transmission. I’m trying to decide if it’s worth it to get a new one—I know they aren’t cheap. How much is a transmission replacement on a BMW?

Answer
I’m sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with your transmission! You’re right—it will likely be very expensive to replace a BMW transmission. The cost for the service and parts can range from $3,000 to over $7,000. However, you’ll need to talk to your mechanic to get an exact estimate.
The main reason that repairing or replacing a transmission is so expensive is that the mechanic will have to remove the engine in order to work on the transmission. This drives the labor cost up. The parts themselves are also very expensive, with prices ranging from $1,000 to $3,500 and more.
Unless your car is newer, you could end up paying more than your car is worth to have the transmission repaired or replaced. So, many car owners choose to just buy a new vehicle.
