This is pretty disconcerting as it could cause a problem merging or avoiding traffic and I feel it is a safety issue. The car violently lurches as it feels like it is trying to find the next gear.

I took this to my dealer and they could not find any faults and BMW doesn't feel there is a problem. Have any of you found this problem?

This sounds like a similar problem that was observed on the 2008 M3 DCT ....they fixed it eventually....when enough people complain they will fix it
