Accidentally found this feature.

I downshift a lot. I had the car in D and thought I was downshifting, but accidentally put it in N and then somehow threw the shifter over to the left. (SD)

The feature? The car threw the shifter back to the D position so I could pull it from still in N to D and engage the gear.

Nice work BMW!

Good find. I did something similar many years ago on a Saab 9000 Turbo and accidentally put it back in drive. The result was a snapped transmission shaft.

I wonder if it works the other way and prevents you from neutral dropping.

Better a Saab than a Bimmer. You have a gift, my friend.
