Zeaq I think steptronic was pretty standard on the automatic transmisions sold on the e36 (someone correct me if i'm wrong). Its basically a way to select the gear the transmision is in to make it sportier. I thought you had a thread about it not too long ago.

Yep, it's pretty much standard. There's the A/M button (auto/manual mode), and when it's in M, you have to change the gears yourself by moving the shifter up and down, however it's pretty slow shifting. :duno

^yea the steptronic sucks, I have driven loaners from the dealer and played with it and my mom's mini has it and it is so slow, adds a little bit of fun to the slushbox but you have to time it about a second before you want it, I just wish the mini had a stick.

I'm starting to think that sticks are a dying breed. Most people can't drive them, then again most people can't drive

bleh not really man, any car enthusiast is going to want stick, and the tuning scene is larger than ever now with the internet and all.

"sticks" will never die - they may change but we won't see elimination of the stick in our lifetimes. They have their purpose

I can't imagine driving anything else. But more and more cars are coming out with either no stick, or steptronic type transmissions.
