Whats the best RPM/Speed to run a 6AT 335i??

Also what would be the best shift points?

I tried running from a 2nd gear at 4k at the car was a cow until it hit 3rd gear and started to pick up speed.

Does anyone brake boost?

Maybe I'm answering the wrong question...but I'd brake-launch at 2-3k, and then let the DS shift for me, since the shifting is so crisp and precise

2500 to 4500 rpms in 2nd 3rd and 4th gears are your money spot! Go to the red line and watch the power fade away.......



I use the paddles but it is the same engine so it cant be that much different than the manual tranny

First and second should be redlined. After that, you have to deduct more and more revs on the gear changes because the torque curve is not setup for redlining.
