Your getting the second to first gear slam (surge) ... A transmission update fixed mine . Read the sticky thread on transmission surging. Lots of good In formation about this subject and other transmission issues.

One thing that helped with my E39 was to disconnect the battery overnight to clear out the adaptive transmission and ECU memory. When reconnected the next morning, the jerk went away. It also seemed to only happen in D mode, not DS mode, if I recall correctly.

I'd say still get the AT software updated, but we'll worth trying this workaround to reduce any potential damage that could be done by the jerky downshift.

I had the same issue, they completely changed the joy stick inside the car, which didn't help but I was happy it was brand new since mine was chipping lol. They they had to put a new tranny, again no complains lol. It was 100 bucks for me since it was still in warranty. But I think it's software or mechtronics

I get something like this too.

Mostly when on a (upward) hill. When I apply the brake it jerks to a stop.
I think it has something to do with the "hill holder" or even the torque convertor unlock.

Could it be that I am a little short on trans fluid?? When they did the mechatronic seal, some fluid was lost and not replaced. they said it was ok????

I would like to check the fluid but it is typical BMW.

BTW as the weather gets warmer it happens less.
