: : 1) Has anyone know whether the "Steptronic" transmission will make it to the U.S. for the 328i?
: no rumors on it...i doubt we will see it anytime soon...the E39 touring is the only US cars that it's available on (in fact the E39 sedans don't even have the 5 speed auto)
: : 2) If so, is the Steptronic transmission worth waiting for? I understand it is available in outside the U.S. currently. Has it gotten good reviews?
: go for a manual (j/k- i do realize autos are a necessary evil in some places)...haven't seen any reviews on it anywhere
Just had a new E-39 540 sedan come in the shop last week with Steptronic. Don't think you'll be seeing it on the 328's anytime soon.
