gears shifting hard on automatic trans

As topic says, gears on my e90 are shifting hard. I feel the car is taking a lot of load during transition. It feels like they hold up for a second or two before moving onto next gear.

car as about 157K on it. I got trans fluid change last month.

any suggestion or help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You could try resetting adaptations through INPA as a start.

Go to bimmersport in Mississauga and they can update your software for about $100.

Had it done at RMP. so, i'm assuming they put fluid which meets BMW standards.
I wanted them to put royal purple but they said those are good for MT and not AT.

Thanks for the heads up Wolf.

Does anyone know the software i should be upgrading to? version #? I just want to make sure that i get the latest version so that i don't make frequent trips to garage.

Thanks

Update: Just got back from Bimmersports; transmission software did not need update but updated DME. They also cleared adaptation. Jonny said it will take about 200 KM of driving before i start to notice any differences. He also said if problem persist then may have to re-build transmission....

Hope you won't have to rebuild it...Do you think changing the fluid previously caused this to happen? Was the car shifting rough prior to the fluid change?
