Depending on how you have driven you may notice really jerky or rough shifts between gears if you have driven aggressivly or really slow passive shifts from driving like a grandma

Simple steps

1. Turn cars electronics on-push start button once or twice without turning the actual engine on.

2.Hold the gas pedal to the floor for 25 seconds
3. Most times you will hear the gearbox resetting itself and hear some "noise" coming from your car but not always noticable so dont worry if you dont
4 Now start your car and enjoy the gearbox reset to its factor settings and open for all new learning. The shifts are silky smooth again and shift points shift faster-basically it totally makes your tranny perform better.

It is a verified thing by BMW and definetly works
I saw this in the US site...I had try but nothing happen ? does it work the same for our 320i ?

I tried this today and can't tell if it made any difference. Probably because I don't drive like a grandma !!!!


Everytime I get into my wife's car I have to re-teach it how to shift - she deffinitly drives like a grandma.

well i agree with the fact that the car adapts to ur driving style, but i kinda get the impression it shifts according to your style at the beginning of everytime you start driving... cos if i drive very juvenile the gears to hold longer... which gets kinda annoying... but when that happens i just use the steptronic manual thingy... can anybody relate to this??
