Sport paddle shifters auto/manual mode

Loving my new 2019 X3M. Though noticed when I have the car in sport transmission mode. Having a hard time switching from manual back to auto, without having to move the shifter back to normal transmission. Seems if I tap both paddles exactly at the same time I can switch back to auto but it's incredibly finicky. Anyone else found a trick to shift from manual to sport mode quickly via the paddles?

As I understand it, the only way is to move the shifter back over. I would also like to know if there's another way to get back into auto.

I use the sports button on the console, then the paddles.
Car seems to go back to sports auto when it gets bored waiting for paddle input.
