The ATS in the above comparo has a 6spd ZF transmission.

Speaking of 6spd vs. 8spd, I can't say yet whether 8spd is definitely superior than 6spd. I drive in manual mode most of the time, I don't know if 8spd will be too busy in manual mode. Next time when I do another comparison test drive, will try to see how manual shifting with the 8spd feels.

One thing I don't quite like the design of the new auto shifter in BMW, it is for you to look at, not to play with.
