8 speed Auto: Does it start in 1st or 2nd in "D"
My old 530i when driven in D mode it would often start off on 2nd gear to save gas, but not always. If you baby the car it would learn to start off lame. Does the X1 2.0t's auto start in 1st or 2nd gear when in D?
You can test this at stop in D, move the stick to S mode to see if you can feel the A/T shift to 1st.
