I don't think my 2006 ks was right from day one either.
At about 20k miles, the dealer did some 'work' on it but didn't replace the faulty parts in my opinion, ie, the $800 housing that was part of the problem or maybe THE problem..
bumping along, come 40k miles, barely made it to the dealer, 2 grand to fix it. I wasn't happy about that for the same reasons.
They should have replaced it totally when they installed the 2nd trans (at 38k), said they did adjustments, blah blah, bmw was just tired of spending warranty dollars on my lemon.
