Mein Auto: BMW X5 3.0d 2004
Transmission "Bump"

HI I had this too.

Only when as you say come to a rolling stop.

The tech bit= the car is dropping down into second gear not 1st as I thought. It is to do with the timing of the gear changes.

Most of the time the hard "bumps were if I approached a roundabout slowly and hit the gas hard to make the gap then I would get the "Bump".

Only other time was a soft jolt coming up to the lights.

I had a software update done on the gear box and this almost disapeared. On now Rare occasions I might get the soft lurch at the lights, however this is so soft you have to concentrate to notice it.

by the way mine is a 2004 3.0d X5 sport
