Not sure why posted but looking at the older Posts the question never was answered fully why when Cold there is an issue. OK, if on an incline it can happen even with proper Fluid Level.

The ZF Transmissions are a bit sensitive when Hot /Cold, the Oil Level will rise when Transmission is Hot, normal physics that when a Fluid is warmer it expands as do the internal parts of the Transmission.

When checking the Fluid level needs to be in a Normal Operating Temp state. XXX Degrees as described in TIS.

I had this on my 2008 E91 325d. Having searched the web I came across a similar issue, so printed out the thread and took it and the car to my local bmw independent specialist. £50 later and updated gearbox software the problem was solved.

BTW mine lurched when pulling away from cold, I was getting what felt like a thump at the rear.
