Mein Auto: BMW X3 35i M Sport
I recently test drove an M Sport before ordering one yesterday. Going downhill, I downshifted and did not "notice" any change. Eventually, I noticed the tach jumping up with each shift. It took about 3 gears out of the 8 before I could feel the engine drag effect.

Seems to be seamless, and looking forward to getting mine. Will need to get used to 8 gears instead of 4.
