Hey guys,I'm currently using BMW 528i M-Sport 2012.I'm facing a problem which is when the car is stationary at the taffic light,the engine off.Then,when i released the brake,the gear suddenly changed to 'P' mode by itself.Do you guys get it? any of you had this problem?

Thanks

No, never happened to mine. Not normal and you should have it checked. That is very dangerous

I had a 528i loaner while my 550i was in for service -- it did almost EXACTLY what you described. The engine shut down; about 5 to 10 seconds later, the engine started up but the transmission went into Park.

The car I drove was a loaner while my 2011 550i was in for service. I only had the 528i for a couple of days, so I don't know what happened after I had it.

My car does exactly as desribed.
Was in touch with BMW HQ.
Local dealer is trying to get this fixed with their help. So far - no success.
