It is running nice and smooth. I drove it about 200 miles the last 2 days, with no issues. There is no hesitation, no power surges or drops during acceleration... everything seems pretty good.

I bought this car last Fall, and I have always wondered if it is as powerful as it should be though. It's pretty quick, but I wouldn't say it's powerful in the low end. I couldn't burn the tires if I tried.

I could get the tires to squeal but not 'burn rubber' like I can in my M3.


You might try removing the sensors and inspecting them. Maybe clean them and re-install? Definitely get new O2 sensors if they've gone bad, but check for other problems first. You don't want to spend the $80 or so for new O2 sensors if they're just going to be fouled again.
