OP and others with the jerk: The jerk can be mostly alleviated, if not completely removed, by updating the transmission software and changing the fluid/filter (which should be done anyway)

To my knowledge, the DME/transmission module software is updated at the same time. Thats how it was at least when I did it for two cars. Completely removed the jerk.
is there any problem that you haven't dealt with/fixed before?
