4. Does anyone else (wife, child) use the same key / profile? Or do you each have your own?

I suspect the issue may be the adaptive transmission learning your driving style. Or it may be an engine management issue - throttle position sensors (TPI's) have been problematic in several BMW models, causing the vehicles to "bog" under acceleration.
Build Date - April 2010
Standard Steptronic
Issue is gone in Sport
Only one key is used, the other is in the safe. I drive 90% of the miles on the car.
