I don't know specifically what the problem might be but i know that with my 530iA (and i think all BMW automatics) I will be in 5th gear going 50km/h if I'm accelerating gently. Since the transmission is not under much load it just shifts into top gear and uses the low end torque to accelerate. Mine however will downshift into the appropriate gear if i put the pedal down
