I liked it. I had it in auto mode and frankly couldn't tell the difference between it and a good ZF Steptronic.

It has been said it produces a delay when first backing up and then putting it in "drive". I didn't get a chance to do this. I only went forward.

My right knee brushed the console in the 135i. That never happens in the 3 Series-much more room.

However, I could see myself being quite happy with the 300hp. I just wish I could spread the love among the highway troopers.
