Classic symptom of low trans fluid level. See this article (level is at bottom of page) for the procedure. Note that it requires the car to be elevated, level, running in neutral at a specific temperature.

These transmissions are particularly sensitive to fluid level. If you don't know when the fluid was changed, have the filter & fluid changed. Despite the "lifetime" fluid claim by BMW, most recommend changing it. BMW has since retracted their "lifetime" fluid recommendation.
