Somehow, I am not completely convinced that is the driver input only.
Why does it happen only in the first gear?

First gear is more direct. Just compare this; stomp on the throttle in 1st gear and stomp on the throttle in 6th gear, at the same rpm. Notice a difference ?
First gear is twitchy, probably even more in sport mode.

More acceleration/deceleration in 1st for throttle on/off. Makes your foot move more.

Agreed. But no amount of experience will prevent "oscillations" while upshifting from 1st to 2nd gear under strongly increasing throttle while going over a hard bump.

Great advice (incl. turn off sport mode).

BTW, say "Hi" to Brian Okesson for me. And let him know that as I STRONGLY suspected and requested all BMWofE (Blithering Idjots) had to do was reset my SMG to fix the probs they created w/my car.

Peace, Love & Truth,
