daver is an unknown quantity at this point
when I turn on the ignition and starting to drive ,for example in the morning or almost 4 hours later after the last driving, my car is making an incredible noise.. because the gear is not shifting.I feel that the gear is trying to shift. but no shifting .I am driving my car with this noise almost 1.5 miles. then when the engine warms up ,my car is shifting the gear and the noise disappears.. I discovered that when I warm up her almost 15 or 20 minutes before my first driving ,my car has no any problem with shifting.what the problem can be?
if the problem is my transmission ,why my car shifts gear easily when the engine is warm?

I used to have the same problem on my e-36 auto, (there's a thread in this forum somewhere) According to the BMW dealership here (2 places) this is due to the car holding the gears initially to achieve operating temperature quickly, and reduce the dreaded "cold wear", and quite normal and to be expected.

They say drive gently, keep the rpm below 3k until car gets warm enough, and it will shift normally. Just my 2 cents.

p.s - I did change the tranny oil for good measure, no noticeable change, but I'm happy if the Bimmer experts are!

my winter car does the same thing, when you let it warm it keep it in nuetral and that will help warn up the transmission faster. I still havent found a solution yet either, but you should change the fluid if you havent already.
