Mein Auto: 2007 X3
I'm having this very same issue. I have a 2007 X3. Last night my transmission light came on as I was exiting the expressway. I tried to get as far as I could to safely pull over, but when I stopped at a light it locked and wouldn't move forward. I let it rest for a moment (w/out turning it off) and I got it to move forward to move to the side.

I had it towed to my mechanic--my warranty ran out in November -- and he drove it twice today and cannot replicate the problem. He ran the diagnostics and it says the computer lost communication (whatever that means). He's going to keep it and drive it again tomorrow, but now I'm afraid to drive it!

A couple of weeks ago I had to replace my water pump and I'm just afraid I'm going to start having issues. I may be in the market for something newer that is more reliable and less expensive! I bought it CPO and it has been great until now.
