I've gone to my dealer before for a TSB that's been all over the e90post and my dealer look at me like i'm fabricating these documents.

How do you warm up your transmission before driving the car?

My 06 e90 6AT has the same behavior on cold start, so I warm up car a min or two before cruising.

The question I have is, should I put gear in N (instead of P) during warm up AT?

There is no functional difference between neutral and park, other than that park engages a mechanical lock on the output shaft of the transmission. They will warm up at the same rate.

So both engine and tranny will be warmed up at the same rate on cold start by putting either N or P (Hence no need to put N). Got it

MAF sensor

I had the same issue for about six months along with an uneven throttle and rough idle in gear. I had the plugs changed and it got a little better but not much. Then I read an article about the MAF sensor and that over time it will get dirty and send an inaccurate reading to the computer causing the gas/air ratio to be off. Once I cleaned the MAF all my symptoms mentioned above disappeared and my car performs like new. I used CRC MAF sensor cleaner. Try it, I took all of 15 mins and $8 for a car that runs like new.

Would someone mind posting the transmission adaptation reset DIY? I've searched for it and am not coming up with anything. What I did find requires INPA.
