Question for all X3 Steptronic owners.

Do you drive the car most often in sport mode or non-sportmode.

I tend to stick it in sport most of the time because of the feel and fun factor.

Sport for me... regular for my wife. She thinks she gets better gas mileage that way. And she probably does because she drives it easier than I do :D

Yup.

I drove it in auto until the 1200mi break in period was done, but now always in Sport. I think I know better than a computer when to shift, since I'm the one looking at the traffic, road conditions, etc. I frequently don't shift until 4000.

I noted right away that the shifts are a LOT faster with the X3 than with the Steptronic in my wife's '00 528i. Still not quite as fast as in a Z4, but pretty close.
