Take it to another dealer. Problem fixed.

My 760Li did that today when I switched from R to D. It scared the hell out of me.

I dont think Vatkens is going to assist with a 2002 car.

Do you mean it kind of clunks for a second when you switch gears? If so, thats normal I was told.

You can try... And you did try to match my sig but no cigars buddy.

Like your 760Li though...:rofl:

Take another look at my sig, "The original":D

minnesotaR6 07-02-2007 05:38 AM

it usually happens when i start up the car and go into "R" then "D" rite away. maybe i should let it rest in "N" before i shift into drive so fast.

We had a major debate with BMW Canada and infact had a big meeting with regional manager here in toronto and basically this is somethin notorious with these 7 series models (E65/66) because its an electronic/ drive by wire transmission as oppose to the regular transmission. So when you switch gears it is suppose to do this:dunno:

The new S-Class has the same transmission, so does the new M-Class, and I think the neweer X5s and 5 series (MY-2008) have a similar design, but I personally didnt feel that bad of a jerk while switching gears from P-R-D:angel:

This is usually more promininent when you are on slopes
eg: backing out of ur driveway :rolleyes:

Its a pity this technology is relatively new and has to be perfected or whatever needs to be changed, so this can be avoided :mad:

Hopefully the new body style 760Li will not have this problem and then we can order the individual series and be content as 7 series customers :)
