I'm a new BMW auto owner as well, a 1999 323i, and it exhibits the same
problem you describe. This, and two other minor problems thus far. 1)
The previous owner broke the sun roof sliding shade, and 2) the engine
whines (very high pitch) at only certain throttle positions. Otherwise,
this is a damn fine car!
