Mein Auto: 2004 BMW X5 4.4i
Do not bother repairing the transmission because there is nothing to fix. This is a problem on all of the E53 X5's 4.4i. I have the exact same model as you and we have the same problem. Do not try to fix it the thing is this car does not handle those conditions well. I do not know why the car's transmission just doesn't like it. So just to avoid this from happening make sure you come to a complete stop before accelerating. This is very annoying and I wish they didn't have this problem but they do and we love the car enough to deal with it. Hope it helps.
