    2002 540i sudden acceleration problem

    This past Saturday, I was braking as I was pullinto into a parking space at a convenience store going very slowly. Without warning the car surged ahead.I did not apply any pressure to the gas pedal. I had my foot on the brake as hard as I could put it, but still the car was moving forward -- I could not stop so I slammed into the barricade meant to stop people from going into the store with their cars and the car stopped. I could not control this car.
    5 minutes prior to this happening, while I was at a light waiting for it to turn green, the car seemed to be racing. I could hear the engine rev up then slow down, then rev up again, etc. although I had my foot on the brake. I took it to the dealer and everything checked out fine -- including the brakes. They could find nothing wrong. I am worried now driving it. Has anyone had a similar problem?
