This is irking me more and more and I hope there is a solution you guys might now about... I have the sports auto on my F11, it also has VDC, I mention this as I usually pootle about in comfort mode, because you know, UK roads and 19" runflats... am I right? The gearbox is doing my nut. I read before I bought it that it was super smooth, the best BMW put in a car, yada yada, mine isn't. It's dim witted IMO, say your coasting to slow down coming up to a roundabout, at around 20mph dropping speed it's like it's mistiming a gear change, so you get a slight jolt, think of when you shift down (say from 4 to 3) and the revs go up, you get that forward jolt, would be the best way to describe it, then, if you lightly press the accelerator, nothing happens and I swear this catches me out everytime, I give it a tiny bit more gas and jolt!, as it eventually realizes I've hit the gas and want to move forward. It's the clearest way I can explain it. I've changed the setting on Idrive to only change the suspension when selecting comfort to see if normal mode does the same thing, it does, I rarely use sport so can't comment. I did some research and it was suggested on another forum a software update was required, I asked the dealer to look at it quoting the forum info (big mistake- they look at you like your a loon) they said nothings wrong with it. Anyone know what I'm on about here?? I can't be the only one. I did try a sequence of "resetting the gearbox" where you turn the car on but not the ignition and hold the accelerator pedal down for 30 seconds or something but either I did it wrong or it didn't work.
