Eggzactly. The 335i has loads of low rpm torque, but with my MT 128i and 328i, I've found the most economical lower gear upshift points to be around the torque peak of 2750 rpm.

But until the OP gets a feel for how his engine and transmission are interacting, light throttle in D is probably his best bet.
