Mein Auto: 2005 545i
Dropped the car off this morning with BMW Dealership. Filled out a customer complaint form with details about what the car is doing, specifically:
Intermittent harsh 2-1 downshift (jolt)
when coming to a stop with light
brake application.
Jolts and/or jerks felt when
reaccelerating after coasting.
Judder when gently accelerating
(most noticeable at an engine
speed below 2,000 RPM).
Received a call about 10 minuets ago. They were able to replicate my complaint and have opened a PUMA case. It's either the Mechtronics or Transmission failure, amazingly only after 48k miles!?! Glad that the car is CPO as this is an expensive fix.

Does anyone know if the software will be updated when the tranny/mechtronics are replaced?

On a side note, my passenger fog light was out and I noticed condensation. Seems I ran over a street cone on the highway...$345 to fix. I think I'll search for the housing and try to install it myself.
