New transitioner from Question for Jon Schafer (or anyone)

I went to my dealer last week and was looking at a convertible. Among the options for this particular one was the auto transmission. But it was listed like this:

Automatic Transmission (CVT) $1295

Does this mean that the 3 series now has a CVT transmission? I saw the post over at, but I didn't quite get the answer. If this "CVT" does not mean continuously variable transmission, then what does it mean? I know for a fact that I definitely saw the letters "CVT" in parenthesis after the auto trans. and before the price.

...Most recently (last summer), we received 2001 3-Series cars that (mistakenly) stated: "bi-xenon" headlamps. Bi-xenons started with the '02's... CVT may become an option for the '03's? :p
