Funny, it actually took BMW a little while to realize this too!

When they first offered the steptronic it was setup as the opposite. My 2001 E46 was push to upshift; I hated it. The next model year, they switched it to the current configuration.

Luckily, the parts were all compatible, so I was able to change mine around with 2002 E46 parts.
