The first thing I would be looking at is the flex plate that the torque converter is bolted to. It has the ring gear on the outside and are prone to cracking and braking off the crankshaft

Transmission jumps in and out of forward gears base on rpm checked fluid and its fine what could be the problem?

Sounds like your torque converter needs replacing. Torque converter is what makes the tranny shift "automatically" and works by engine rpm's, and it sounds like yours is plugged and getting stuck until it hits higher rpm's. HAVE IT CHECKED BY YOUR LOCAL TRANNY SPECIALIST.

Z3 whirring sound when transmission is engaged

It is possible that your differential could be making the sound. However, if the sound disappears when putting the trans in neutral, I would suspect that the differential should still be making noise. If the torque converter is worn, then you would have noise while in gear, but probably not as noticeable while in neutral. Depending on the production date of your car, 2000-early2001 Z3 had an issue with the torque converters.
