DCT - S mode

Hi all

Decided to play around for higher rpm shifts, pushed the lever to the left for sports mode but only shifts up to S6 not S7 on my cluster.

In normal D mode it shows up to D7.

Am I missing anything?

From what I understand, if you leave it in Sports mode (but not manual mode) the DCT will never shift into the top gear since you are telling it to be "sporty".

Same thing happens with the autos in other BMWs.

I assume it will work in Manual mode up to M7. Maybe you aren't driving fast enough to get into S7..

It will not stop you from going into M7. However, in automatic mode it will never go into top gear. This has been the case in the ZF 6AT as well.

With Steptronic, it will shift to S6 when I reach about 120-130 km/h

Good idea. Try 200km/h. I reckon its got to shift. If the you meet up with the Victorian police, you can explain it was part of normal testing.
