Automatic Transmission

Hi My problem is about the automatic transmission for E30 1990,its a six cylinder,when you press the gas peddle,the picking is so slow while the rev are high,is there some thing that can be done to increase the picking up speed?I Just bought it last week,I have been having another E30 1992 318i manual,and its perfomance was very ok.Only that am interested in these other one because its a Touring Wagon.

Is it the 2.5? What have you done to it so far? While not a barn burner by any means, the car's power is adequate, even with the auto tranny. Have you tuned it up? Replaced the air filter? fuel filter?

When we got ours, it was pretty sluggish. Full tune up and fuel filter made a big difference. Now I just replaced the catalytic converter last weekend and its quicker still. I'd guess it hits 60 mph in maybe 8 or 8.5 secs. It was more like 10-10.5 when we first got it.
