Our 135i was making ~360 wheel hp if I remember correctly along with full M3 suspension conversion, DA coilovers, LSD and BBK. Lapping Laguna Seca at low 1:40s isn't exactly going out for a Sunday drive, especially for a 135i. Although oil and water temps never gave us issues, the DCT transmission sure did.
We never did try to auto mode, perhaps it will automatically down shift when asked to do so.
