Mein Auto: BMW 545i
I purchased a CPO 545i last week. I am also having surging at 35-40mph. I have the previous owners service records and he reported the same issue. All they did for him was a software upgrade and told him it was geared that way and all 545i's do it. I called my SA and he said if there is no code they won't do anything. They also said if the tech test drove it and felt the surge they would submit the issue to BMW, but they probably won't do anything since there is no code showing. So basically I would be out the $95 diagnostic fee for nothing. WTF???
