Similar in my 535i. I'm in my 3rd long term BMW with auto wipers, they have all been superb, normally on the lowest setting with plenty of scope for increasing sensitivity if necessary. I'm up in the highlands, so plenty of experience in all kinds of rain.

Key to any auto wipers in my experience, is keep the screen clean, particularly around the sensor area. Worth cleaning with white vinegar to ensure there is no grease residue distorting the light, or the rain drops.
