Acceleration hesitation

I have not been for a while on the forum and I no longer see any recent thread on the hesitation problem with the 2011 535i. Was there a final solution or is everyone happy with it? Just asking.

My free trial finished almost two months ago. I have been waiting for their call/letter since then and nothing has happened. How long would be fair to wait? Is there any other strategy?

Well, don't scream. What I really meant was throttle delay. This is fixed by the Sprint Booster. The rest of my comments are the same.

With the hood closed. Does the noise seems to come from below the car? Does it continue for a second after you turn off the engine? Is your car a 1/11 or nearby build?
