Reset adaptive drive

I read this on another 7 forum. Started car with one push of button without foot on brake. So all the electronics are on and engine off. Depressed gas pedal all the way down for 25 sec. Then started engine. Car seemed more peppy and even brakes responding better. Don't know if this was real or just fooling myself. Can others try this out and post. Appears this may erase the adaptation.

Is this an automotive equivalent of a snipe hunt?

I tried it, nope.

I don't think it us a snipe. Do you drive in normal sport mode

This is the transmission reset - been around on all BMWs for the past 10 years or so. Transmission adjusts to your driving over time, this just resets the shift points.

I almost always drive in the normal mode, not sport. I'll pay attention to the shift points for my drive tomorrow (thanks for info newman!). I must admit, I don't 'push' the envelope unless I have to so perhaps my car and I aren't a good test case.

Please dont start this again. That is a myth. It is on all of the various boards. It does not work.

Mein Auto: 2010 750Lxi
Recently bought 2010 750Lxi with 50k mis. All works well, but seemed to shift early in comfort and normal mode and was fine in sport and sport+ if there was enough throttle applied. In sport and sport+ modes under light acceleration the car was jerky while shifting, almost unsure of the shift. Also in Comfort and Normal modes in normal driving, shifts were early, downshift was slow and often shifted 2 gears, which took off, but wasn't what I wanted at gradual throttle. The reset procedures we followed and this did resolve the issues I had. Comfort and Normal modes stay in the correct gear to keep the car nimble and shifting easily for more acceleration, sports modes also work correctly even under light acceleration. Helpful post. Thanks.

False. It's working great and most if not all dealers are aware to that

This method works 100%! I did it to my E60, E65 and now my F01. I do it every month or so to reset my wifey's driving style. ;-)
