Gear Shift Feedback Issues

Hey y'all - i'm noticed some issues when I shift the gear to D. Tough to explain in words, but I'm don't get the kind of feedback you'd expect when shifting gears. I have the 2013 550i.

Let me try and explain it a bit more - when shifting the gear from P or R to D, I don't get the two-step feedback from the gear knob and it sometimes ends up in N. On trying it one more time, i get to D but it's not seamless.

Has anyone faced a similar issue?

Thanks y'all

My guess is it's a spring inside the gearshift. Are you trying to replace yourself (out of warranty?

Could look up the part and try to find a replacement (might require coding though). FYI, it seems like it might require a new gearshift module, here's what it shows for my car...
