An Almost Fatal Crash. Car Was Backed Up From Garage In The Morning Into The Street, Put In D Position But There Were No power To The Wheels For Approximately 5 To 10 Seconds. Car Approaching From Behind On The Street Needed To Swerve To Avoid Rear Ending My Car. This Problem Happens Continuously When The Car Is Cold (sitting For More Than 8 Hours). There Is A Delay Of About 10 Seconds For power To Engage In D Position. According To Online Customer Complaints And bmw Dealer, This Critical Safety Issue Is Related To A Software Issue In The Transmission. A Software Upgrade Fixes The Problem But When Approaching bmw For This Critical Safety Issue, They Refuse To Provide The Software Upgrade For Free And The Dealer Wants To Charge $360 To Update The Transmission Software. *tr
