I know of a 135i in the UK where the gearbox gave up after 50k miles behind a remapped N55.

It's the reason BMW don't offer the manual trans bolted to the back of the 335d.
Yes really. The people pushing those numbers have the DCT slipping while the manual has no problems. BMW's ratings have never really been truly accurate.
