I used to have the same error on my 2008 e92 M3. I would happen each time I came to a stop (or close to a stop). http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=296782.
I received the latest software updates, a faulty idle air hose was replaced because it was deteriorating and finally the gear selector switch was replaced.
I also got the "Engine Malfunction/Reduced Power" error while driving on the freeway twice.

In the end, BMWNA did a buyback.

My car got the 'trans range N' message on the iDrive. Brought it to the dealer and they replaced the shifter. Took 1 day. Car was fine even when the message was on.

Angry Similar problem; warranty expired

Having the same problem. Started 2-3 months ago. After a sw update the problem was gone, until it reappeared last week. Now my dealer says they need to replace the shifter which, with a 1,5 day of work, costs almost 1600 euros.
However, my warranty expired 9 months ago and I've driven 43000 km, but I don't want to pay because a good product shouldn't break down in this timeframe and I have no control over how the dct works. So the problem can't by my fault!
Problem is that I have a US version but driving in Europe (Netherlands). Therefore warranty is 2 years instead of 4 years in the US. My dealer tried to get it repaired under some sort of warranty but got no as an answer from BMW.
Has anyone has a similar issue with expensive repairs just outside warranty and found a way not to have to pay for it.

Thanks.

So the general fix is a software update and gear selector switch or does the whole shifter need to be replaced? Are there any diagnostic codes to look for?
