Today's the day

I pick up my 2009 335i coupe Msport highline dct E9 something? I will apologise in advance as I will probably be asking loads of stupid questions like how to use the bluetooth etc. Previous cars include impreza, Rx8 and Astra VXR so this should be a nice step up.

Not everyones favourite colour, but it's a white 2009 coupe with 3300 miles and the handover was 1pm. I am from sunny Redcar Halpin so not far away from you.

What an absolute fantastic car this is, the interior, engine and dct gearbox are awesome.

Is it just as fast in sports auto mode as it is in sports manual changing gear on the steering wheel?

Mine seems to keep reverting back to auto when I come to roundabouts? Is this because I aren't driving it correctly?

If you are in auto mode but use the paddles to manually shift it will revert back to auto after a short while if you don't shift again.

If you move the stick to manual position, then it will stay in manual.

Remember, even in manual it will still change down the gears for you if you allow the revs to drop too far to prevent a stall i.e. when braking for a roundabout etc.

Enjoy!
