automatic transmission fix

So back story to this I bought a salvage 2007 r56 base for my wife fixed it up (front end damage) looks brand new. But the other day she was driving to work and it didnt go into drive after being stoped at light. With 92000 miles that would be surprising for a transmission to go out. Well I get it home and drain the fluid preparing for the worst. I decide to just try and flush the fluid and go from there. Well I got some toyota fluid filled it back up and it works perfect, better than ever. By the way I know most people buy that vw fill tool... I didnt want to wait so I made one out of some random brake line and a m10-1 adaptor cut and bent the line worked like a charm for all of 5 bucks. So for anyone who has a similar problem I hope this helps.
