it slips out of gear and stays in neutral. The engine will still run. When it does this it kick back on my hand like a heavy object and I am starting to feel pains. What is the like cause. Is a BMW 2009 323i not suppose to give me some indication if there is a problem with the transmission system eg clutch plate, gear box etc. I want to know possible cause and likely costs before I return it to a BMW Dealer or would you recommend any reputable mechanic?

I'm in the uk so unfortunately can't advise on who to use however I would have all engine and transmission mounts checked for excessive movement as this can cause this. It's unlikely to be a clutch fault as it would cause this on all gears. Unfortunately the cars pick up on most faults but not faults of this type normally. It's most likely a gear linkage or internal gearbox fault. There's nothing common on these models I would recommend taking car to a transmission specialist if you can find one close to you as they will be far more knowledgeable in this type of fault than even bmw will be
