7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

What you are experiencing definitely does not sound normal. Seems like you are experiencing issues when the torque converter is not locked up. Thats usually the signs of a bad torque converter

I have had mine replaced ... cost me about $1000. I was experiencing all kinds of weird issues including something similar to your description.
