Steptronic/automatic owners unite
 
I have a 2002 330Ci Sport package with 56,000 miles on it. It is indeed a steptronic which was not my first choice but I couldnt let it go for the price and condition the car was in, I do plan on modifying it regardless of it not being a manual.

If you have a step, post up a picture.

What are your current mods?
What are your future mod plans?
What is your year, model and mileage?

Overall I am happy with the car and here she is bone stock

I bought a step trans too and i'm very happy with it. Would of been a lot more fun to have a manual but its still a pleasure to drive everyday.

Here's my 2005 325i sports package, pretty much bone stock other than the grill, some LED angel eye rings, CF hood and trunk roundels, and my smoked out lights. I am currently looking for some rims, the M tech II body kit, and maybe some splitters to give it more of a sporty look. Maybe one of those vented hoods too!

Thanks E46Mango!

Yea i've been told that about my corners, i might switch them out for clears later haha. That run down yellow building behind my car with the mini keg in the front doorway is actually my barracks haha and i'll tell you one thing, it aint much to look at! My room on the other hand is pretty squared away though, i'll post pics soon because they are your typical German designed apartments.

This will turn into an auto vs. manual thread in 3...2...1...

jasonbimmer 09-04-2012 06:20 PM

see my sig.

tock172 09-04-2012 06:22 PM

I have one. I don't really like it. Don't get me wrong, as automatic transmissions go, it's not bad, but it isn't right for how I use my car. I would gladly trade for a manual.

Lusticles 09-04-2012 06:24 PM

Don't really like Automatics but here I am.

I think the exterior photo was shot before I got nice new headlight lenses.
And I also have a manual shift boot. If anything it adds a little extra storage for small items. :rofl:

Really digging the dig pic. As far as the step goes I think it's not terrible to me the biggest draw back of an auto is not being able to be in the right gear whenever you want

I really like the manual shift boot and please make a DIY

Bought my 2000 Touring new. If I had wanted a manual transmission, I could have saved myself about 1700 bucks. I happened not to want the cheap way out. Mine has 74K on the clock. Oh, no mods, now or ever. Why? I doubt if either you are I are as good as the factory designers or engineers. They didn't create the Ultimate Driving Machine by accident. Why would you want to fuk up what they did?

Wickedly 09-04-2012 08:25 PM

Checking in, beautifully maintained car with step. Can't complain, it's a daily driver in traffic, so auto definitely makes sense to me.

Here's the most recent pic!
