BTW, not had a chance to compare the F30 autos, but I've driven the F10 with both standard and sport 8-speed auto boxes, there is a definite difference, the sport auto feels so much more precise and in tune with a sporty drive. I'd not say the immediate feeling is 'faster' changes in sport mode from the sport auto, but a different and better feel (now I'm using the 'better' word), for both up and down changes.

Okay Pete - I respect your opinion based on the many rational and helpful posts I have seen posted by you in this forum.

I've just emailed my HR department to change the automatic on my F10 order to sport automatic.
