Glad you enjoying it!

I'm with you.. I do not sports mode.. I don't like how it just revs senselessly, I need a nav disc update too as I have also been told to head back to road.. lol

The gearboxes are adaptive. Can take a while to 'forget' the previous owner. Mine did.

You can try this:
Ignition key to second position (just before start)
Put accelerator to the floor hard and hold for 25 seconds (motor is NOT running)
Release accelerator
Start car

But I have the useless GM 6 speeder - a reason to never buy BMW again that gear box - so may not affect the ZF unit that I think you guys have.

But will not hurt to try.

When my X3 learns itself to a point of stupidity e.g. revving the 30d out to 3500+ RPM in first gear on gentle takeoff, this fixes it. Will revert to learning mode and 1st gear change up at 1700 - 2000 as it should be.

If everything is working as it should, the gearbox should adapt to your driving style, not do something that doesn't reflect your driving style.

"Should" is the word and nice in theory but . . .

.
If you have a six-speed, you have the ZF gearbox. The GM was a five-speed. I have the ZF box and it works fine. Doesn't 'learn' any bad habits. It came with what I consider a few 'bad habits', I presume because of the previous owner more aggressive driving style, but even without re-setting, it eventually adapted to my driving style.

we had the X3 for about three years, never had any problems with the gearbox at all..pretty sure all X3 are Euro-spec and comes with the ZF box.

That surprises me. ZF that is. I will have to research a bit more. Maybe I have been trolling mainly US forums too long.

Short of reading model codes on my beast, the X5 of the same vintage has the ZF 6 speed, the X3 the GM (made in France) 6 speed. The current X1 and new X3 have ZF boxes.

I've got a BMW tech sheet somewhere that says that first-gen X3 3.0d has the ZF 6-speed. I'll dig it out and post it when I get a chance.
