@pinecone, i have noticed if i simulate driving a manual the "bang" of the tranny does not happen. And your right if you down shift with your foot off the gas then theres no match rev. Not sure how it affects the SMG Pump. But its crazy how so much drama surrounds this one computer controlled pump. I think its too late for bmw to do a recall but it seems like most of the bad pumps have been fixed. I do remember a family member driving my Camaro SS and he was granny shifting and i could hear the tranny "bangin", To be honest i think its hard on the tranny so i lift my foot before i shift.
