Any 1997 E420 (Sport) Known Problems?

Does anyone know of any common problems on the 1997 E420 Sport? I have been looking for a low miles 1994-95 E420 Sport, but a really nice 97 came along (Silver, ASR, Sportline Suspension, all the goodies!). I'm specifically concerned with the 5 Speed Automatic Transmission. I consider the 94-95's to be kind of bulletproof, and don't know a whole lot about what changed mechanically for the 97, so any information/experience would be helpful. The VIN is WDBJF72F8VA274432 if anyone has access look up any service records or CarFax.

1998 BMW 540i Sport
1995 E320
1992 400E
1989 BMW M3
1979 Triumph TR7 (1st car)
1986 BMW 735i (Sold)
1980 BMW 320i (Sold)
