Did you ever resolve this issue?

My '05 X3 with 115k miles was fine, but after a recent state inspection where they changed the rear tires and replaced several emissions related components (to the tune of $2100) my car is now experiencing the same issues. 2 or 3 hard jerks between 1-2 and 2-3 and a shudder (like driving on rumble strips) in higher gears. Seems normal from a cold start but gets worse as it warms up. Also, hitting a bump seems to start the shuddering and I have to let off the gas to smooth it out again.

I had the shop who did the work flash a new shift program based on a SIB but it didn't fix it. They don't seem interesting in tracking this issue down. Based on other posts I'm thinking its either an alignment issue or coil packs (given that it happens more when warmed up).

Any insight would be great. Thanks.
