My 2004 9-3 Linear has broken down for the first time..

Here's what happened...

It has 80k miles, and has always had timely oil changes.

Soooo...a couple of days ago the engine light came on. Then the car began driving really strange...I would shift gears and the RPM's would go crazy high.

Well today the car went crazy..and I could not shift gears at all and it began shaking and I got a few alerts about how the ESP was out, etc. I ended up not being able to drive at all. Had it towed to the dealer..

So that was that...I guess I needed to share the experience. Anyone go through anything similar? Any idea of what this could be? I won't have an estimate until tomorrow. I'll update if anyone's interested...
