Exclamation 95 m3 power loss

hi guys please please can you help

i have a 95 3.0 euro m3 s50 ( a real m3 not a us lesser model)

the problem is very often in the lower rev range say up to around 3 thosand revs there is an intermitant power loss after 3k all the power comes russhing back with a kick. i have paid for a new MAF air metre as the diagnostic through up a fault on the MAF. i have checked the voltage on the battery terminals, when the car is started and it is quite good raises to around 13.5. some times i have to crank the car twice to get it to start. i allways use high octane fuel, its had a recent service including oil and air filter etc etc the car does not back fire which tend to make me think that there is no unburned fuel and thus all coil packs should be working. im running out of ideas please somebody help me im sick of my car being the way it shold be

Hey buddy, welcome to the fest

Maybe better asking on the M3 forum here - http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=106

Sounds like it could be a camshaft sensor issue.

Hope you get it sorted
