6MT hill holder?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Does the redesigned 3 series still have the hill holder where at a stop and you have the brake and clutch depressed and remove your foot from the brake and go to the accelerator the brakes are retained for a few seconds? My 2007 328i did and checking to see if anyone can confirm. Thanks.

I believe so... but let someone else confirm!

I can't wait to get my car back to verify this,
but I thought i felt some hill hold during my trip.

It does. It's a little more grabby than the hill hold in my old 1.

It definitely works though unlike my wife's GTI which never works and her old WRX which only worked sometimes.

Yes it does. I just checked the website. They call it "Start-Off Assistant."

Thanks. I'm driving a 2011 X3 so I'm a bit lazy now. I had a 2011 base A4 that did not have hill holder and I missed it. I'm going to my dealer team drive event June 19th to take part and order 328i sport 6MT.

Nice! Have fun! The voucher comes a couple days after to your email. Not sure when you can apply it however.

I always wondered how that works in MT cars, so if you're on N it kicks in and holds the car?

Anytime it detects you are on an incline, it holds the breaks for a few seconds after you take the foot off of the brake, giving you time to give it some gas before sliding backwards if you are a bit inexperienced with a MT. Regardless of what gear you are in.

A little off topic here, but why would that feature be available for AT I mean if you're in D then the car can't go backwards, right?

The ZF 6-speed auto will roll back, if the incline is steep enough. I've tried this on my E91, to see if Brake Hold is really necessary and it does definitely help the auto. My car will run back in Drive, if not using the Brake Hold function.
