Maybe the analogy to X3 similar problems is worth exploring further. It is embarassing to have business associates ride in the expensive vehicle and feel the uneven performance.
I was fortunate enough to have BMW NA buy back my X3 for the tranmission issue and I replaced it with a 3.0 X5. The transmission in the X5 is German built and much smoother. I have non of the issues you are talking about. Btw, I didn't get anywhere until I hooked up with BMW NA in New Jersey.
