Rough gear change : 1st to 2nd

In S-mode when shifting from 1st to 2nd on heavy throttle, the shift is pretty rough. For other upshifts, it's smooth. Is that normal ? My car is still in break-in period.

Are you in S1, 2, or 3? That would make somewhat of a difference. I'm still in the break-in period also but I do recall that on my E92 M3 under S5...the shift from 1st to 2nd was always very rough.

Automatic changing from D1 to D2 is sometimes rough too, but not as bad as E60's SMG. I've also experienced E60 and F10 to "shoot" from 1st to 2nd in automatic mode, extremely rare but also extremely rough.

Mostly in S2.
Hope it'll smooth out after break in.

I haven't noticed any issues.

Coming from E60 SMG, this thing is like butta.

I haven't noticed anything either. Super smooth and as fast as lightning!
