Forgot about the new gear. Yep - shimming is in order. And I agree with what disston just said - and we're not talking about bmw, these trannys were built by Getrag and shimmed by them. It's been said they didn't do a very good job of shimming, but at least they were usually shimmed loose rather than tight. And frankly, every time I've opened one up, the shims have fallen out or gotten confused, so didn't know which went where.
