About 5....maybe 6...days. Sorry, I couldn't resist The Steptronic is a nice transmission (one of the better "manu-matics" I've driven) but it is definitely slower than a manual.

Performance may suffer but at 7:00 a.m. in bumper to bumper traffic with a bagel in your hand it becomes the "Ultimate Breakfast Machine"

It's 6.5 for a manual-- so I would add another second on for auto and say about 7.5 seconds...

According to the spec posted here a manual will do it in 6.5 secs. For an automatic add 1 sec to that.

BMWs are not drag racers; 0-60 is not the measure of a car. A BMW is made to handle, yada yada.

The answer is 9 posts
