Mein Auto: 2006 X5 3.0d
Hi all,
I have a 2005 3.0d, it dosn't have the bad kicking feeling,The E53 auto transmision has a function it the torque converter that disengauges drive when it sences slower/no wheel rotation to engine load.
This function is for fuel econemy when at a standstill, My vehical will from time to time delay when moving off and if you give it some gas it is like dropping the clutch in a manual gear box,
it realy jars.
This may be something to check out, for if this disengauges when slowing then engauges when giving it some gas, it will jar.
