The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.
In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.
Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

I've a similar problem on another make of car, the problem was a blocked silencer. You can check this by putting your hand close to the exhaust when the car is idling, you'll notice very poor air blowing against your hand. Power seems to be restored when you stop the car for a few minutes because the fumes that have built up inside the exhaust clears away. You start driving again, and the build up starts, when it becomes too much then power loss happens.
Hopes this helps
