2000 M5 Problems

Need some Help. The 5 has about 70k miles on it and all maintenance is up to date. The problems are:
1. when the car is cold the motor surges, not very much maybe a couple hundred rpms or so, and will go away once the car warms up completely.

2. while cold and when completely warmed up the car will chug (i guess thats the word) really bad when shifting into 2nd gear.

the dealership said no problems were found on the computer, but we insisted on the head tech to test drive it, I went with him and sure enough he finally believed that there was something wrong.

Long story short. the dealership basically said if theres no code showing up on the computer they can't fix it.

Any suggestions?

Go to a different dealer/service place. That's a really lame thing for them to say.

Could be a dirty injector... You mentioned a "chug", is it only during second gear?
