If there is one area I hesitate to question BMW it is Technology so I tend to take their word for it that it is a good thing... Besides they have too much ($$$ and pride) invested in it to back off, barring any wild problems with it.
If reception is lukewarm though, the logical thing to do is to scale it back as an option (or bring back standard auto as the option).
What do you think?
I bet BMW yanks it out and returns to a traditional system within a year. I think it will flop big time. It just seems funky. Otherwise, I think the E65 will be a success.
