If it was able to rid the throttle of the delay then this would have been a different story, but since it is simply modifying the default throttle map, it cannot affect this. I reckon, get rid of the throttle delay, and that by itself will yield a far far better throttle for all driving conditions - accurate lightning fast or slower gear changes would be so much easier and consistent.
because the autos have terrible throttle mapping (especially on the earlier years). Also, I see you have a 330i, which has much better mapping than the 325i and 328i already. That's why it was so jerky with your car.

If the OP has a 325i or 328i, the pbx won't be as jerky.
