Hi, Purchased an E39 540 Auto yesterday, quite pleased with it but there's a gearbox issue that I only discovered after handing over the cash... The box snatches 1st and reverse when warm, it feels like it's slipping for a second or two first, otherwise it seems fine. I'm told it developed this fault after it had an oil and filter change and going through the recipts it looks like they've used Carlube XTU001 universal fluid.. I'm assuming this oil doesn't meet the required spec? My question really is will this have screwed the gearbox or can I still save it by changing the fluid and filter again with the correct stuff. Car is a 2001 and has done 150k Cheers
