Mein Auto: 2011 550ix msport
OK- may be another variation here but when I select sport or sport+ my default is chassis and transmission (the shift points definitely are changed). I selected this and have no problem. When in sport or sport+ AND I move the gear selector over to the left- the transmission seems to become even more aggressive (it instantly drops a gear and per the same speed keeps the revs much higher).

Is this normal for everyone or is this what the sport auto tranny is for?? It is normal for me now, but at first felt like a preflight check with buttons and things to do before driving. My only gripe is remembering to shift the gear selector back to normal before trying to reverse.
2011 Dark Graphite Metallic 550 ix- Black Dakota with Anthracite, Msport, cold, convenience, premium, HUD, SAT, M5 trunk spoiler, front reflector covers.
