Ahmed and Hasan, I just noticed your responses to raising the rev limiter, I just wanted to clarify that raising it does help in minimizing the amount of shifts but that depends on what speed you are doing the runs at and probably what mods you have but I also noticed no difference in SMG shifts as I did a few vbox runs and the lag time is the same at 8000rpm or 8600rpm, again maybe this is also mod dependant.
335xi I wish you the best in getting this issue resolved quickly
