I don't use a wax as the durability and ability to shed dirt is limited.

I suspect there are differences even in the same model of cars... my 328 was REALLY bad and took a while to get better.

My BMW 328 and my BMW M3 did this for the first few thousand miles. That is, being a little stiff and sometimes a "crunch" going into a gear when very cold. Both of those cars stopped doing it......

All of the cars have this to some extent... it will improve with mileage and with temperature. My M3 was like this too and after about 4,000 miles it was WAY smoother.
