This is my first BMW and would like see if anyone had a thought on this. Thank you
The car bobbing down when going from N to D is normal. In neutral there isn't any power reaching the wheels, when in D you are in gear and the car is trying to move. The car is just pre-loading the suspension because it is trying to move, that's all. I have a feeling your loss of power issue is not transmission related.
