2008 535i Transmission/Mechatronic Swap

I have a 535i and the transmission is slipping, especially from 4 to 5th gear. I've changed the seals, oil, filter and the solenoids, but is still slipping. My next step is to change the mechatronic, or the whole transmission. I found a mechatronic from a 2007, 335i but they are not the same. I can get the transmission from a 2008 528i, but I don't think that the mechatronic is the same, even though both transmission are 6HP21. Can I swap it with the transmission from the 528i? Would it work on my car?

Did you ck the rubber gaskets under the valve body? There is one big rectangular one and 3 different size rubber sleeves. ck before you replace your transmission.
