Auto gearbox "braking"

Recommended Posts

Loving my first month of owning my 2018 20D Xdrive Xline. 1 query I do have is regarding autogearbox "braking" ie coming off the throttle I'd expect some engine braking but I'm not experiencing anything,  almost feels like she's freewheeling,  is there a way to check, set, reset anything? I've got Bimmercode with licences for both android (my phone), and IOS (my Ipad).

Morning Richard

The Gearbox has very little braking effect in normal driving there are hill descent settings which give some braking and even change down a gear but from memory (dangerous) that only kicks in at speeds below 30mph

Or are you talking about the emergency braking system fitted to some models with cameras?

Just meant ordinary speed reduction when slowing down.  Have just come from an EV which had regenerative braking which I accept is  a totally different thing. Thanks for putting my mind to rest
