09 BMW Z4 3.0i - Transmission Shifting

I bought my Z as a CPO with remaining Factory Warranty. When i have the Z in Sport mode man does it shift hard. I have the automatic transmission. Is that a normal characteristic of the car or is there likely something wrong. Honestly it feels like the double clutched version of the M3 but dont have a double clutch in mine obviously. There is little to no time between gears and it jsut rockets away. (Sometimes it feels like it is leaving me sitting on the pavement and the car is going on without me) I upgraded E85 to the E89 and there is a huge dfference. What do you guys think? Does your shift as hard a mine?

One more thing, it doesnt happen so much when i am under full throttle. It happens more when I am under half throttle or less.

thanks for the insight.

Also do we have any how to documents on various procedures like the E85 board has listed in their sticky section? If not we should really think about starting one. This car is coming up on the point where we are likely to start tinkering with it a bit more for tuning purposes or cosmetic upgrades such as wind deflector installations etc.
