Same on my BMW 335i. Tried them once or twice, and never used again. The transmission auto upshifts at redline anyway, so it*s not better for acceleration.When I got my 2012 Acura TSX wagon I was chuffed at the idea of the paddle shifters. While I played with them a bit, in the beginning, I pretty much never touched them again.
You mean the "Engine Harmonics Enhancer" ?
Sounds like a balance shaft type thing to me, but who knows.
That sounds more like what I described, but I guess we have to wait and see. Could be totally other.Further refinements to the engine include a new Engine Harmonics Enhancer that tunes to the engine with a much more refined and powerful sound, while the emission regulation has been improved to ULEV70.
Hell yes! X1 had them because it didn't come in a manual and I used them a bunch..mixture of both lever and paddles but one way or the other that car was told when to shift more often than not- bit tedious with 8 gears but useful and fun when they work well.Paddle shifters, std on GT and up. About time.
SkyActiv-G 2.5L and 2.5T have already had a balance shaft. So I believe Unobtaniums guess is correct.
