: The 5-speed auto is great but I don't really notice any kind of difference in its shift pattern. This may be because it is so smooth I don't pay much attention to it. So far, I have about 5500 miles yet I am not in-tune with the transmission. I drive relatively conservatively then, all of a sudden, I hit the gas and abruptly drive aggressively. I have to hit the kickdown once in a while to get the car moving.
I think the transmission is one of the nicest things about the car. Look, all you have to do to reprogram it to SPORT mode is shift it down one slot to "4". That puts it in sport mode. I like sport mode for heavy stop & go traffic too.
I've got a 323i.
