Rough shifts-M mode

Alright guys Im new here and I have a question....as I am driving in m mode with the car set in p500 sport and everything set to max, as I shift with the paddle shifters it sounds like the transmission is banging into gear,(like there is a thud that comes from the trunk when I upshift.....) could this be due to the way Im shifting or is this normal....and if so is there any trick to working the shift

Let me say I am beginner when it comes to high performance cars as I am only 18 so take it easy on me.

When the settings are full blast (S6/DSC off/P500S ect..) gear changes can be pretty violent at higher rpms. Try the throttle lift technique, lift a little after you select a gear.

I personally don't mind the violence when my foot is planted, its my passengers that do.

FloridaBmw, yeah that is the problem when im going pedal to the metal pushing 140 and upshifting there tends to be thud noise with the gear change...I guess that is normal.... What part of florida are you in....

Plus still that recalibration of the clutch sounds good but I still dont know if you can do it with an 2008

It is normal, I've read suggestions to reset the SMG every 1k miles. I've done it once on my 2008 with 6k+ miles.

I'm in the Ft. Lauderdale area.

BTW if following BMW break in S6 should not be used until the 1200 mile service.
