No such issue with my DCT running ESS stg 1/2... Just saying! Sorry if slightly off-topic!

And regarding the request for different DCT maps, I am actually happy with how mine shifts well before 7000rpm in S mode. Only in M mode does it pull all the way to 7k, and if not I would have been a bit dissappointed! I can shift earlier if I want to, but if no M-mode, how could I ever try 7000rpm? One complaint however is that I have experienced 3 times now that it shifted from 1st to 3rd while in S-mode due to a bit of wheelspin (also without ESS)...
Little known facts about BMW: 1) The N54 is still in production and used in the current Z4 35i and 35is. 2) In a Z4 you can get sport+ steering combined with normal suspension etc by selecting DSC=off. (Update: DSC=off also offers sports steering in the M135i) 3) All Z4s with 19" wheels are still only offered with the worst performing OEM tires ever sold with a DCT equipped BMW (Potenza RE 050 RFT).
