I have a 2008 X5 and a 2008 535. The transmission on the 535 is far superior to the X5. The 535 always seems to be in the right gear while the X5 needs a quick push on the accelerator to get it to downshift on steep hills. It is especially annoying when you make a turn off a level road and immediately start going up a steep hill. You must hit the gas right away to get the transmission to downshift. Unfortunately this is the way the tranmission functions. I must say that the the good qualities of the car, especially on the road, far outwiegh this minor inconvenience. Hopefully BMW will correct this situation in future models.

You must have stumbled upon an extremely rare prototype, since BMW has never sold a vehicle equipped with a V6 engine.
