(btw, the 2.5si has grown so expensive compared to my 2.5i.)

I complained about it on the E90 forum already, but basically whenever I need to pass on the one-lane highways, I signal and shift lanes, then romp the pedal to kickdown. It takes 2 seconds for the gearbox to wake up and shift one gear, and then another second to downshift another 2 cogs. This is for a 80-140km/h, 6-3 downshift pass. This is normal behaviour IMO. Pretty lame and pretty low standards yes, but that's what I expect from the 3. Not the lighting shift like my X3.

We should start a new thread on configuring Ev's next X3. Tobacco and Terracotta cannot be ordered with Comfortsitze er I mean Comfort seats. They CAN be ordered with sport seats.
Remeber the"Almost Got Me Killed Thread"? That is exaclty what it did. A MAJOR design flaw if what you are saying is true.

Well getting a little antzy as BMW was supposed to contact me by today. Almost feel like, "I knew it was too good to be true". I really prefer Hpyengr mode over Evlengr mode.
