I recently got my girlfriend into a 2006 330xi with the automatic transmission. Car seemed perfect when I bought it, I myself drive a 2006 330i 6MT so when test driving I thought the rough jolt at a stop was just me not use to driving auto. Anyways, I now know that it is the shifting in the transmission.

I can reproduce the rough shifts by putting the car in manual mode and shifting while stopped. 1st to 2nd up shift has slight bang, but 2nd-1st downshift is a real thump-er and I want to get it fixed up.

I have all the INPA and coding software and have done basic coding on the e90s. Is it possible to check the software version on the transmission myself and possibly update it myself if outdated. I tried the tranny resets etc, nothing helped the 2-1 and 1-2 shifts are bad and always present, even on a cold start.

Car has 223,000kms and we purchased from original owner.

How can I verify which transmission the car has? Canadian model, can provide the vin if that will help? Has anyone packaged a whole kit together for this?
Oil, gaskets, solenoids, filter etc
