2003 745i uses 5HPxx ZF transmission, completely different beast than 2004-2010 E60 5-series, whcih uses 6HPxx transmisson.
You probably have high-mileage 745i, get it diagnosed correctly; dealer not the best place for transmission work; they just replace with rebuild unit. It could be mechatronic, sensors, solenoids, torque-converter, clutch-packs etc.

Sorry to hear and good luck.
