I am ready to purchase an used 5 series auto, but not sure if Steptronic is a better choice over the regular 4 speed. I've noticed that they are also more expensive, do you guys think it's worth the extra $$$? Thanks in advance!
My E39 540i has steptronic and I love it. I have the best of both worlds....A 5stage auto,and a bit of manual gear changing as well....just to bring a bit of the mongrel out of ya !!
I've never had a problem with this transmission.............runs sweet as..........
