Hi guys

The 6sp manual gearbox on my 2012 520d M Sport went last week. It wouldnt engage reverse at all. The car only covered 70,000 miles so far. Has full service history (albeit not all from main dealers).
I dropped it to my local BMW dealer and they are sending off for a "goodwill" repair. I dont expect much of a contribution from them if any.
There is a local mechanic who specialises in gearboxes etc. He told me what BMW also told me which is that you cant buy parts for the gearboxes as BMW dont sell them so they cant be fixed, it needs a new box.

Surely there are some manufacturers of third party parts for BMW gearboxes, is there?

Has anyone else come across this issue, and how did you resolve it?
Any help would be much appreictaed.

BMW came back to say no contribution for goodwill. Surely a gearbox should last longer than 9 years and 70,000 miles on a BMW?
