I've read that there is a way to reset the transmission adaptations using the 30 second throttle down method (but I've heard mixed reviews on whether its just a placebo effect)

Do I have to go to the dealership and ask them to reset it for me?
There is a way to reset adaptations (do a search) but make sure you are not venting your water pump which one of the steps requires you to press on the gas pedal (while engine is off). If you find the guide/instructions post them here. Thx. Edit: Note: I never reset my adaptations.
If no codes are being thrown use Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner (concentrate). It solves rpm fluctuating upon cold start-up. Also, for most BMW problems start off by scanning your car with the Peake Research Tool. It contains the actual BMW codes. If you want to register a newly installed battery for free (just buy a $10 cable) and google/download BMWLogger
