I don't have any problems with clutchless downshifting on the bmw. My guess would be it depends on the gearbox. The getrag is supposed to be good and so far i'm not disapointed. The procedure is use i , off pedal , neutral , then push the shifter into the required gate with moderate pressure. the synchros do their job and it slips into gear. Granted it requires a little more time and effort than a clutch system but with so few shifts required .............. just my 2c.
Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the ammeter goes into the red and reads 2000 Amps, that's bad.
