My Ride: '04 330Ci

A clunky shift on these cars is either pilot error, or there's something mechanically wrong, such as a worn throw-out bearing. Our 103,000 miles with the CDV in place show that the CDV doesn't cause rough shifting.
Congratulations! You've been enjoying smooth shifts for all those miles in your 330Ci coupe because you never had a CDV. Not installed on this model.

If you had the CDV you'd be jerking with the best of them.
