I had thought that it was an engine issue, not transmission. Anyone else having similar problems?

I had my trusted independent shop in West Chester, PA (Bimmerworks) Check it out. He found nothing wrong.

Do you guys happen to know if the 645 is also impacted by this issue? We essentially have the same engine / transmission combo as the 545.
i'm in the same boat as u r.. the problem disappeared and it is 59 degrees here in Dallas, TX.
So, it can't b a transmission issue.. more like a injector issue if u ask me!!!
