Something to the effect of press start with foot OFF brake, then press gas pedal to the floor past kick down and hold for 30 seconds.

I've performed this reset and it seems to help for a while until relearning it's sluggish ways due to stop and go city driving.

I've complained ad nauseam about this and how the X3 4-banger loaners I've gotten feel so much more responsive, when daily driven, down low (what most people do everyday). The mppsk tune on the M40i uses "overboost" on kick-down to thrust you forward & give the almost immediate sensation of brutal torque/speed but it's not practical in everyday driving. Otherwise, it feels lazy on any gear below 3K when cruising.
