8-speed tranny

Is the 8 speed transmission in the x3 m-sport the same one used in the F30 sport transmission?

And X3 M-sport or X3 without M-sport package, it's the same 8 speed transmission.

Basically the same but there is a difference depending on the torque rating.

I know the high torque diesels are not the same as the petrols plus there are also variances in ratios across the depending on what model it is fitted to.

Found in VW, Land Rover, Porsche, Jaguar, Bentley together with Audi.

Developed by BMW and built by ZF according to the brochure

I then googled it and found this:

When I was comparing cars before the x3 purchase I was very impressed with the Volvo XC60 T6. That car had a 6spd transmission. One more + for the X3.

X3 transmission is much better than the one in our Acura TL-S.
