328i: Daryl, I have a 1997 328i BMW and I ran over a pothole

Customer Question

HI Daryl, I have a 1997 328i BMW and I ran over a pothole cover in the street and the transmission pan came off. Everyone I contacted has told me that I will need a new transmission but I really think I just need a pan. What do you think? No one has ever actually looked at it they have just said "oh you're going to need a new transmission" I am a woman and for some reason I feel if they are trying to get over o me. Also if I look under there how will I be able to tell if it just need a pan or a transmission?
