That sounds inconsistent but, I'm hoping it's just the writing that's unclear. However, as I mentioned, I haven't noticed the system automatically adjusting air-volume/fan-speed while in automatic-mode.
If it's like my 2011 335, even with auto 'on', you have the ability to fine tune how quickly the fan cools to its desired temperature. I usually keep the fan speed in the middle position, while still in 'auto' mode. However, there are times when the fan is blowing too loudly so I'll lower the fan speed. My thought is that the fan will just run longer at the lower speed until the desired temperature is reached. Make sense?
