Reset of SMG

Family ,

Tried to reset the SMG ( pulling both paddles for 2seg+ between 20/90 mph ) and actually I notice that the shifts became much more abrupt .. It feels worse than before in my opinion What should I do ? Did I do the right procedure ? Any opinions ?

All options except adaptive seats and full leather ,
MOD`s :
- Ipod Adapter
- 1" scratch that some SOB, who is going to
burn in hell , keyed in the A column

Its not the size of the dog in the fight - Its the size of the fight in the dog

i'm not completely sure, but i think the smg needs time to recallibrate itself. it will learn your driving habbits and adapt.

Learning usually takes 30 - 100km's.

It should be done after chaning a wheel or tyre. I have done it many times. Just for fun and I am not even sure I notice anything. I want to, but I am not sure I do. One thing for sure; it has never gotten any worse after such a reset. I like to believe it gets better.

Did you put it in neutral? I haven't performed the reset on my M5 yet, but on my M3, put it in neutral while rolling at speed and pull both pedals back like you said

Needs to be in neutral, foot off the gas completely. You probably effed up the gearbox if you didn't put it in neutral and you pulled both paddles -- who knows...

You'll notice a difference over the next 2 days.

If you didn't put it in neutral, you should feel no difference at all. I pull my paddles all the time when not in neutral. Why?? Just for fun I guess or maybe I like to picture myself in a Ferrari where pulling both paddles actually produces a neutral setting. I never felt any difference while doing that. Must be something in your head
