4.40i transmission issue reverse to neural itself

Cold start in the morning reversing out of the garage and transmission puts itself to neutral, doing it for everyday now past 7 days. I didn`t have time to take it to service until today.
Went to service and of course couldn`t replicate the issue so left the car overnight to be checked in the morning for cold start.

Service guy said he never heard of something like this.
Did anyone have the same problem or do you have any idea what causes this?
Barely 5k miles and 5 months old car.

Thanks for the replies

Mine does it now and again.

Seat belt not on, keys not in cabin, handbrake engaged, door not closed properly...it's always something like that. Turn car off and back on.

I get a warning in the display...something about securing car or it will roll...like you say...tight fit garage ... Sensors going off etc... I'll pay more attention next time and report.

But how do you clear it?

Oh that happens to me too when i try to drive when door is open and car puts itself to park.

But this transmission switching to neutral from reverse is making me crazy, every morning when i`m leaving my garage once. then i put it to r again and it doesn`t do it again. And then next morning same thing. Let`s see what dealership service says tomorrow.

Update!

Dealership tech was able to replicate the issue!

He said he has no idea what`s causing it but he heard few more cars with the same new engine had it but he didn`t say how it was solved.

He said they informed the BMW headquarters and an engineer is flying to Arizona next week to inspect and evaluate the situation...

WTF?

Can you please advice me guys i don`t want to be screwed over this if i have any rights in a situation like this.

How do you think BMW or dealership will fix the issue if they can`t pinpoint the problem.
Try to fix it by changing parts and doing updates? Buyback? Exchange with another 440?

Update!

Chapman Chandler BMW GM called me today apologising for what i`ve been going thru
Such nice humble person. Told me that BMW is working on the issue but they don`t have a fix for it yet.
He said they will take care of the situation the way i`m going to be happy agaain. He said most likely they will try a software update if not then buyback and exchange with a new car of my choice.

Under those conditions your car goes into N, and not P?

I'll have to check next time it does it.

I'm in auto pilot when on the few occasions it's done it. Thought it was me doing something wrong ... Thinking perhaps it was a scenario that made the car think I'd gotten out without applying handbrake or something.

I'll pay more attention.
