After driving the car now for a couple of days, i have to say i don't mind ASS at all. With the Manual all you have to do is just start to press the clutch and the engine fires right up. Also if you are in stop and go traffic again with the manual you can just depress the clutch a little and then the car never shuts off, so its not issue. I can see where it might be an issue with you Auto types.
In addition I think the 335i may have a smoother system, most likely due to the engine. hardly notice the startup.
