Mein Auto: 2004 330ci
car jerks suddenly when coming to a stop?? please help

hello guys and gals,

i recently purchased a used BMW330ci and i have noticed that when i am coming to a stop the car will jerk suddenly like it forcefully dropped down to the next gear. it definitly feels like the transmission or like a bad tanny mount. also, with the AC if the AC is on and i am at a complete stop and i happen to turn the AC off the car seems as if it wants to turn off on me.

does anyone know what these can possibly be?? or can someone point me in the right direction on where i can find a solution to these problems. i would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions. thx

Mine also does this, i get a little vibration with it also. I'm going to replace majority of the rear suspension bushings anyways due to age but it is more than likely a diff bushing.
