You will be surprised! I actually like the 135 automatic box! I test drove the Lexus ISF, which suppose to have some fancy double clutch 8 speed that changes within 0.1 of second. To me, I found the 135i is not that far off in manual mode you know.
The IS-F just has a regular automatic gearbox, just like the optional steptronic on the 135i. It does have 8 speeds, though:
