That symbol means you have a transmission fault code and the trans will be limp model to protect it, mainly 3rd gear. and won't shift properly. Sounds like you have more going on as well. You will need to have the codes pulled to know what the problem is. Sounds like your looking to have it towed to your nearest BMW independent garage and have the car diagnosed for the issue.
