    My imagination or is auto tranny shifting better..

    after I had the transmission fluid changed out last week? The shifting was very smooth before and now the shifts are imperceptible.

    I'm at 185K miles on my 2000 528i Sport/Premium and just did the third tranny fluid change since I bought the car with 57K miles in 2003.

    I'm toying with the idea of selling it at around 230K miles in about three years. (I put 250K miles from new on my 1978 530i.) The question is what's the replacement going to be? A three year old 5er from the latest generation? I don't need 4 doors but really like the size and quality of the interior compared to the 3ers although the 3ers have been getting bigger. A 328i coupe?

    An acquaintence had his E39 totalled. replaced>>

    it with current 3-series. He says the 3 has just as much interior room as the E39.

    What a testament to timely fluid changes!
