But from day 1 my AT didn't feel as smooth as the other AT's I had test driven, which was something like 8 of them.
Auto mode is always extremely smooth with nearly no perception of the up or down shift.
Manual mode is when it's not so smooth.

I had a loaner a couple months ago, an F30 328i and it was much smoother in manual mode than mine.
It wasn't a "sport AT", but down shifts were still much smoother.
I would select a lower gear and I would see the tach move but barely feel the down shift. My AT doesn't feel as smooth, and it seems to be getting worse.
