Hey everybody, I just bought a new 325i. Needless to say, I'm more than excited and extremely happy.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get a manual so I have the automatic w/ steptronic. I love the sports mode. The handling is so freaking tight. Anyways, my question is about the "manual". Is it harder on the engines? How should I step up and down? It seems to spin at an overall higher rpm. Also, in accelerating from a stop, should I 'ease' the pedal in, or should I just press it hard from the start? I'm kind of going in between, and it jerks forward slightly.
So I've been reading some of the other threads, and it seems like a cool forum. Glad to be a part of it all B)
