The shifts just want to glide into place with precision and ease. First to second is greatly improved over the previous generation. I am not sure what BMW did but it was correct. I still love my e92 and it's shifter is nice but the f30 is quite an improvement. I hope others here consider making the purchase of a manual f30 so BMW will continue to offer it here in the USA.

Anybody else have any opinions?
Really? Never drove a BMW stick before, but first to second on my MSport is quite long. Have to drop quite a lot of revs to shift smoothly I observed. Unless I'm doing something wrong...
