if oyu got the module with the transmission it would have saved you programming. but since you didnt you will need to have it programmed. your best bet is to have the dealer do the programming. some local airbag service shops can do it but not very many due to the cost of the software from bmw.

Ok but is it normal for the transmission to start from 2nd gear to first gear because it hasn't been programmed
Expert:  mike switzer replied 1 year ago.
yes because it doesnt recognize the transmission it is putting the car into limp mode.
