It will have smooth shifts, faster shifts, better power transfer, improved fuel economy, less transmission wear, more gears, automatic mode and most importantly fairly significantly improved acceleration. Mark my words, the whining from some E46 guys and SMG guys (and others as well) will be loud and pissy. All I can say is, UGH.
I agree, its a good thing BMW is moving on and developing much more efficient trannys. Ill take the faster, smoother tranny.
