So after some discussion on the X1 forum I decided to order the BMS tune - really, really hoping it addresses the problem.
Sorry to hear that you have the same problem, but I'm not surprised that the same issue crosses multiple models (the new x3 has this problem as well) because it uses the same platform (with the 8spd transmission).

Yes, the hesitation can be a hazard when it comes at the wrong time.

The BMS tune will help for sure, but it's stupid that we have to fork out money to fix their problem.
