I don't use Sport+ mode all that much either when driving around town, since it keeps the transmission in at least one gear lower than it should be for just regular driving and thus eats up the gas...

I normally paddle-shift down when accelerating, but sometimes when trying to merge into traffic there's a delay in getting in line and the transmission reverts from M to D and then upshifts on it's...

I've been wondering about low oil as well, since mine really clunks into Drive and Reverse from Park, esp., in the morning when first starting to drive. BUT, I thought I'd see oil on the...

I have DCT in my '16 Z435is which hesitates and clunks when I go from Park to Drive or Reverse. Tech says it's normal because of the dual clutches positioning themselves. Sounds to me more like...

What I discovered about the rolling code openers is that they only store a certain number of codes that they'll respond to (6?). Apparently they kick out the oldest connection code when you program a...

DCT is faster (or at least they were before the new 8 speed transmission BMW's now using) because the clutches are independently engaging/disengaging, but that's for gears next to each other. Our...

Interesting...my shop manager didn't seem to be aware of the issue.

Is the problem caused by the DCT clutches movement?

It does feel like the transmission jumps into neutral while shifting; at...

I was surprised how long it took to get the engine up to temp based on the Oil Temp gauge, so that time may not indicate anything other than a routine test drive. The accelerations are probably just...

G29

The new Z4, G29, is due out BMW says some time this year. It is a ragtop (as a former E85 owner, I'm not happy, nor are a lot of other E89 owners).

There are lots and lots of pictures,...
