M sport versions - gearbox

Do the m sports modela have a sports type gearbox, i.e. shorter / quicker changes?

I just can't get on with the gearbox in my X1 - it may be because I've had sports cars for years and am used to the shorter shift.

Tempted to take an M sport model out and see if I like that any better. I love the car, but it has the worst gearbox in a car I've had for many a year.

AFAIK its the same 6 speed gearbox.
Rumor was that when the X1 gets the n20 engine, bmw will shove the 8 speed gearbox currently in the X3 into the X1.

Shift throw has nothing to do with the gear box, What you need to see is if you can get a quickshift kit for the BMW. ( Different Leaver!)

Ah - that's exactly what I mean - I asked the question wrong then, thanks.

I'll look into this then - cheers
