Red face '94 740i - couple issues

So, I got a new 7 (needed/missed my 7 - expanding family and all) - have 2 issues right now though.

1) shifting, depending on rpm/acceleration/temp the car will shift late & hard. Sometimes it will go through all the gears nice and smooth like it should (fluid nice and warm, decent temp outside, been through the gears a couple times already.) I never have any down shift issues, only up shift. It seems as though the cooler it is outside the more prominent the issue, also it seems primarily when going from 1st to 2nd and 3rd to 4th... though at times it will occur from 2nd to 3rd and 4th to 5th (if I've counted the shifts right... i believe it has a 5spd aod in it... lol.) I haven't checked the fluid (lifetime seal and all, no access to a lift.)

2) I get a suspension leveling warning on occasion, even when the trunk (and entire car for that matter) is empty. I was hoping there would be a sensor that I need to replace, but after talking to BMW and looking over diagrams I don't see one. Could it be I need to replace my struts or springs perhaps? The rear does appear to be slightly lower than the front of the car (based on wheel well gap), but it's hard to truly tell.

Thank everyone! Been away for a while, going to school again and have embarked on a small business venture - but it's good to have a little time to stop by!
