Is there someone who can advise on shift problem after cick down 525i 2001. Shifting down is reasonable but having reached about 130km/h and letting go of the accelerator, she remains at 5000 rpm for far too long. Fiddle the pedal and only then she shifts to 4th or 5th. What can i do to persuade her to shift up when my flight is over? Thanks. Willy

Is this in sport mode? Mine holds 3rd forever in sport because when you go hard down on the accelerator the software thinks you're ready to break laws. Switching back to normal mode usually allows an upshift. You could always try going steptronic, just make sure you tell it to change up about five minutes before you actually want it to change up.
