Is throttle delay normal?
 
I have an 05 545i sport with K&N filter, carbon filter delete, Iridium spark plugs (new), 2012 software update, new alternator and battery. I cleaned the MAS and the throttle body very well.
For some reason, when I am at a stand still, there is a .5 to 1 second delay upon pressing the throttle. In the morning the car has no delay.
Has anyone solved this issue? Or is this just the German way?

It certainly is on the new models. After driving the 2012 models of the 328i, 528i, 335i, and the 535i, I could only conclude that throttle delay is the "New Normal."

Only solution is Sprint Booster. Not a bad thing to have for $300.

I heard that the sprint booster makes acceleration more aggressive, but does not solve the delay issue. Is that true?

Drive in sport mode all the time. If i'm not mistaken sprint booster is only a remap of the throttle response, basically it does not adds any performance but instead just gives you more power with less throttle.
Just remember that driving in sport mode might increase your fuel consumption considerably hahahahaha

You are right. Ive been driving in sport for the last week, and it improved just a tad. Consumption went up, but hell or worth it. Time is coming for a new car, and I cant really say whether im up for a new 550 or not. Too many problems :(

Throttle delay is normal in the driver-by-wire age unfortunately.
Sprint booster sends a more amplified signal and basically cuts down the "lag", does not make the car go faster per say, but gives you the best the the car responses faster when you hit the pedal

Do take a look.

Sprint booster is a placebo effect solution, it provides nothing more than the amplified signal to the computer - in other words you can save $300 and just stomp harder on the pedal. I'd rather have something that give me the same effect AND provides benefits like a little more HP and better fuel economy, such as the ESS tune. It's more expensive, but I'd rather pay more and get a real effect.

I heard sprint booster after 3/4 throttel does nothing.. is that true ? u guyswho have it installed ....,, and wouldnt be the same effect if u were just to stomp on the throttle alittle more and quicker with ur foot. ? and save the cash for maybe a tune with has more benefits and couple more ponnies ?? like pj just mentioned

+1

i'm getting the ESS tune on my 550 this summer. Going to attack the cold air intake as well, maybe AFE?. :thumbup:
