This again!? People have been complaining about 1-2 shifts since the E36 days. That's the way BMWs are. People have been complaining about the CDV since they came out. Funny thing is, after owning 4 BMWs, I have never ONCE had a problem with these. That said, I'm not ramming it into second pretending I'm an F1 driver or something. Slow is smooth and smooth is fast, remember?
If there really are problems with the transmission, I think we would have seen far more being swapped out.
