In the X5, the transmission is smooth and is not a PITA. I highly doubt it would be any different in the F30. I would not even worry about the transmission if in the market for an F30, it does everything right. GM is going to ditch the 6 speed for a 7 speed and then the 8 speed in the coming years.

I have read so many articles that rave about how the ATS throttle blips on down shifts, we have had this in the G37 and G35 since 2007. When you read about it it's as if this is the first time it's been applied in this segment. Color me unimpressed
