It definitely slows the car down. It might take a bit more time/distance because of the rev match, but downshifting with DCT will certainly slow the car down.
Agreed. It's much less of an impact compared to a MT but it does happen. I was equally as surprised as the guy/gal above though until I did some reading and realized I've just never been good at rev matching in a manual (have never driven one full time).

I rarely use this feature, but today I parked in a tight space and folded the side mirrors in only to realize that they only fold in slightly instead of perfectly flat like most cars. Kind of makes the feature useless.

That if you rotate the iDrive knob really fast in you contact list, a vertical list of the index letters will appear so you can short cut to the desired letter in the contact list. Pretty cool!

it won't rev match if you're in sports+ throttle

Dude, I just drove my car, in Sport+, and it rev-matched. Mine is DCT, perhaps that is MT-specific?

My new M4 CP can get its traction down better than my previous M135i in cold/damp weather.

Correct. DCT always rev-matches. MT rev-matches in efficient and sport, but not in sport +. Why BMW doesn't just have an independent setting for MT rev-match that can be enabled/disabled in any throttle mode is beyond me, but it is what it is.

If you hit menu on the Idrive while already at the main menu it will show you a list of your recent activities in idrive. Sort of like browser history. So you can go back to something easily. I discovered this entirely by accident and was mind-blown that I've had my car for a year and just discovered it.

It's so weird, Porsche does just the opposite. My 911 MT rev matches in sport+, but not in normal or sport!

Today I found a 12-volt socket under the dash in the passenger footwell area. All my prior BMWs had this, but I thought that the 3/4er did not. And it is not shown in the user manual. I was frustrated because I always used this socket to power my phone. So I went looking for it and there it was! Very happy now.

Wait where? And why not use the one in the flip up compartment in front of the cup holders.

It's under the glove box, back just a bit and to the left.

I use a powered phone cradle that I slip my phone into when I get into the car, and I HATE having wires dangling, or showing anywhere for that matter. So I route the cradle's power cord between the center console and the rug and then up to the 12-volt socket under the dash. Works beautifully.

Weird, but not really.

Porsche are saying "I know you want to drive in Sport+ to feel like a racing driver but you suck so we better take over for you".

BMW are saying "You suck but if you want to drive in Sport+ like a real racing driver have it at - you're on your own kid".

Other way around. Original observation was about the DCT. My response in hindsight is confusing on its own, but I was referring to my DCT as well.

Yeah - Snappy Phoenix was not referring to your DCT, he was referring to your comment that it won't slow down as much as the MT. He was just noting that it (the MT) will not rev match in Sport+... so yeah - confusion all round.

Keeping stereo on with power off: I always thought you had to switch off the engine (one button push), and that brought you to aux power for the stereo etc. The problem is, that keeps the lights and other items on.

Turns out, if you push the Start/Stop button once (engine off), then again (everything off), then push the stereo power button - just the stereo comes on, everything else stays off. Win!

Cheers
