There is a Computer update - I ordered the cord through ebay and did it myself but search the forums for a computer update. The problem exists b/c the amount of fluid/pressure the computer tells the gearbox to load/unload while gear shift is wrong - esecially relevant between 2nd and 3rd - most noticed rolling into an incline and hitting the gas it would slam into gear. The update fixes it. I first replaced the gearbox oil as well which helped sort of - but the update is what did the trick. Don't go to a BMW dealer - goto a mechanic that is a bmw mechanic you will save tons!
