OP, I seriously doubt anything is wrong. I'd say wait on it awhile and see if it goes away. If the car totally fails, so be it, use BMW assist to have it taken to the dealer. In fact, having things fail catastrophically is probably the easiest way to ensure they actually get fixed.

The general consensus around here is the avoid the dealer unless you absolutely must. What could go wrong? Well, here's an example from today's threads:

Now, if you take it in (and no, I'm not trying to make light of the situation--I feel the frustration) I'd say based on the things I've seen on the forum over the past several years the dealer is likely to provide one of the following explanations:

1. Could not duplicate
2. Normal operation

I may be very wrong. But again, I'd avoid the dealer if I could. Like Fstop7 says, lots have had similar situations only to find it remedies itself.
