I had similar problem with my 99' 540iA. I would
slow down to go thru the toll booths but since I
have a toll tag, I didn't need to stop. Then on
the other side I would give it some gas and the
car would hestitate. It would surge and then
back off then surge then back off with no input
from me, then it would straighten out and be
fine for a week or two and then it happen again.
Interestingly, when it happened it always seemed
to happen right after those toll booths. Anyway
I took it in and they put a new software load on it and it has been fine ever sense.
