According to paper work they did an at5100_zgm to resync the flex-ray. They also did the update for the acceleration hesitation at the same time. The car is much much more stable now and the acceleration is much smoother. It feels like a different car and I enjoy driving it now!
Which dealership did you go to get your vehicle serviced?

I too experience some of the behavior you have experienced by chalked it up to driving a boxier vehicle (X3 is my 1st suv type vehicle as I have always driven cars for the last 40 yrs.).
