335i owner with no options...

All - new to the group. I posted in introductions also. I've had a terrible first year with my 335i.

- Jerkiness when starting from a stopped position, or when geared down to corner
-Lunging forward when braking. Very strong, pronounced downshifting - even at slower speeds
-Harsh shifting between gears
-iDrive frequently shutting down for no reason.
-Low pro tires: side walls worn out after 15k miles (no refund offered)

2007 BMW 335I, SEDAN 4 DR, 3.0L L6 FI DOHC 24V, Bridgestone 18" low pro run flats.

Anyone else experiencing these types of problems?

WOW that sucks. Isn't it under warrenty, just go to the dealership and tell them what's going on. They should be able to fix it for nothing. Usually that's what happens the first year a car comes out, the same thing happened with the 745 in 2002.

I'd take a service rep out and show how the car acts. IMO there's no way a good BMW dealer would ignore problems like these.

sounds like your tranny needs to be electronically reset or something, and you say no options but you have idrive?

1st of all Welcome. As xsperf has said it sounds like a transmission issue, and if no one thinks anything is wrong you should take a rep for a drive. The idrive issues I can't say much about except again tell the dealer what is happening. If your dealer is not responsive to this take it to another BMW dealer in the area if that is an option.

I don't know why your sidewall would be toast after 15,000k but tires are a wear item so it might not be totally out of the question (in 7000 miles I have done more then 1/2 of my tread on my new car )

If you are having continued issues and can't get your dealer to work it out threaten to call BMW NA and say your dealer is jerking you around and not fixing things. I would try to get the issues fixed and if that isn't happening then call BMW NA 1-800-831-1117 (thanks C1 where ever you are).

They are awesome cars and its sorry to hear you are having these issues.
