Yeah, manual mode on a 7G+ is useless, it changes gear when it likes......point?
In fact the engine/gearbox combo in the F11 was about the only thing I did really like about it. I got rid of it after just 5 months. Part of that was because it was poverty spec with the business nav not professional, no xenons, no heated seats, and a really crap sound system. Will teach me for getting a car from stock.
