Trying to shift fast in a high performance car seems like it should be an OK thing to do.

Good engineering compensates for human error.

It's not a question of BMW being asked to fix a problem that occurs when you shift fast. The point is the problem should not occur when you shift fast. It should fix this because BMW's design is flawed.

Let's put it this way -- if they did do some kind of a recall, would you sit out?

My guess is that a lot of folks who blame this problem on bad drivers will get their cars into the dealer, "Just in case."



The car shift fine. There is no reason BMW should fix a problem that only occurs when you try to shift fast. Thats the only time I have had this problem. This is the first time I have seen people start to huff and puff about the issue.

What gives?
