325i step shifts faster than 330ci step
Ok...I don't think I'm paranoid and I usually don't post but I think this is something worth mentioning.
I got a loaner 325i auto with sport pkg. Compared to my 330ci, the steptronic shifted immediately w/o lag as compared to my 330Ci. I had previously lost enthusiam from driving the lagging steptronic on my 330ci, but this new quick shifting on the 325 has renewed it.
One reason I can think of for this is that my 330ci is an early production (door handles pulls sideways instead of at an angle). I haven't tried the current 330s yet, but maybe BMW has changed the software for the steptronic.
Some of the other things I noticed were:
-Handling of the 325i compared to 330ci was definitely better (stock vs. stock). The 325i felt lighter when driven.
-Engine wise, the 330 is still the winner.
-The 325i was very quiet unlike the 330. It does not have the roar from the 330 exhaust.
