Slow shifting in D (auto)

I test drove an X3 28i. It appears that the transmission shifts kind of slow when left in D, kind of unenthusiastic. The downshifts are responsive, but I mean the gears take longer time to engage when upshifting and when there are 8 speeds, I feel more pauses in between the shifts. Do you the new owners feel the same?
