Any chance you have an update on this issue? It's been mentioned a number of times on various boards, but I have yet to see any confirmed diagnostic cause or resolution of it?

About 2 months ago I had a German car specialist simply reprogram the transmission computer (specifically the tranny). Problem solved. Shifts beautifully smooth now in low gears; however, 5th gear still doing the same lurching when cruising at highway speeds. Not sure if I should invest in a repair right now as it doesn't seem to have worsened over the last 15000 miles.
