I drove a 2001 X5 4.4 last night for sale by a private party. It felt sluggish off a dead start when I floored it. He said he had no idea what I meant. He's a friend so I sort of believe him. Before I go to the expense of a $330 pre purchase inspection at the dealr, can someone tell me if the slow acceleration is likely due to valve stem seal issues? Car was tight and nice, I just dont want an expensive repair right away. Car has 134K miles
