It's normal for the 6 speed ZF auto to stay in 2nd gear whilst in normal drive mode. Most likely it's for efficiency.

If you go into DS mode then it will drop down into 1st gear when at a standstill.

That's normal if you are in "D" first is only used for hard off the line accelerating, the engines in most of the E9X's have sufficient torque to pull away in second gear, delivering a nice "smooth" of the line experience
