Mein Auto: 2013 x3 35i msport
Just wanted to provide an update. The dealer was very responsive/willing to investigate the problem. They kept the car for a week and the 2 or 3 persons drove it to their home and back each day at my request. They said they could not reproduce the problem. I drove with 3 of them in the car so that they could see if I was doing anything that might cause the sudden acceleration. Again, no problems. I have to believe something, I don't know what, was adjusted on the braking because it now breaks much easier. To date I have had no further instances of sudden acceleration/jump in rpms. I have not changed the way I drive. I remain hopeful that the issue will not arise again.

At the risk of sounding stupid, what is a TSB. (transportaion safety bullitin?) Any further info on the one issued for this problem with the x3?

Thanks to all for your feedback/info
