Resistance kickdown point

A few days ago I accidentally noticed a point of resistance during a kickdown. After pushing it beyond this point, the engine shifted back and I think it even went higher into the revs before shifting up again. Since this is my first bimmer: is this normal, standard? Either way: I like it

First BMW?
Sounds like this is your first automatic.

Yes, it's normal and standard, very happily.

Not all auto have a resistance at kickdown though, that's a nice touch if that's the case.

The kick down doesn't happen in sports+ if you have it. It's fully manual in that mode. Fyi

I have both for sale. The 20's are oem 6 series style 356's and are a gorgeous wheel. 245/35 front and 275/30 rear. I also have the sport line wheels with only 200 miles including everything for sale. 100% perfect condition. Thanks for the compliment

The resistance is always there as its a physical thing. In sport+ it won't downshift or up shift unless you do it yourself. just to clarify.
