2013 328i Issues

I'm starting to have a couple issues with my car and haven't had a chance to take it to my mechanic so I wanted to see if any of you have any idea what's going on. It's stalled a couple of times when started from a cold start in the morning. It's stalled about 3 times now over the last 6 months or so and happens right when I shift it from reverse to drive after backing out of my parking space. I live in Los Angeles so it's usually around 50-65 in the morning so it's not that cold out that it would be causing problems. Other than that the car drives fine and I've always made sure to take care of regular maintenance. When I restart it after stalling it always starts up fine and drives with no issues.

Yesterday somehow the HUD reset itself and I had to change the height of it and brightness back to my preferences. I've had the car almost 6 years and never had a problem with the HUD before. Today the phone book changed itself from first name, last name to last name, first name for my contacts list.

Any advice or ideas of what's going on would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Was the new battery re-registered so that the car's computers recognize it as a new battery? If the dealer or an independent BMW service replaced it, they would have it registered.

Is there any way you can tell from the car itself if it was done? I used the mechanic that my family has been going to for over 30 years and they've always done good work so I'm assuming they did, but I don't know for sure.

I had this problem too. Dealer replaced the battery and updated the software, and it hasn't happened since.
