I'm new to this forum. I have a new 330CI with auto trans. When in "manual" mode the shift from 1st to 2nd seems a bit slopy and does not occur as imediate when the gear lever is moved. All the other shifts are fine and occur imediatley when asked.
Is this typical or can it be improved??

From what I know it is pretty typical, the steptronic does a good job in changing gears pretty fast, not as fast as SMG, but gets the job done.
