First control we had to find was the speed limiter alert. So far not a slouch for performance. We are still in the gentle phase and I am doing everything i can to keep the wife out of sports+ mode (not sure how long that will last). This car will easily blow my 550i off the road. All in all extremely happy.
i am sorry, but i don't get how thats a good thing shifting i understand since it has 5 clutches but, me personally I like to feel the car accelerate and push me little bit back to my seat.
