  1. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I just purchased a 2008 X5 3.0 with 58,000 miles. I love the truck, its like driving a living room. I'm concerned with how it has a lack of power taking off in first gear when cold and almost like its not completely responding to the throttle. It also seems like the gear is slipping slightly...

  3. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi All, A hearty Aloha from Hawaii. The last time I posted here I had just bought my 1998 Z3, 2.8L. At that time it wouldn't even idle and ran rough under acceleration. Well, a couple months ago I gave up on trying to fix it myself, and took it to the one and only BMW dealer on the island...

    The car accelerates and shifts like normal when driving like an "old lady". But when I attempt to punch it anymore than quarter throttle the revs spike and the acceleration does not match. It feels as if i am still feathering the clutch when my left foot is completely off the pedal. As I let up...

    I have had this happen several times, especially in extremely cold mornings. And it only seems to happen in the morning. I get an engine light and the car is running very rought, not much acceration, clearly struggling. I pull over, turn off the car. Start it back up and it runs fine the...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi I have a BMW E46 2002 318i - Automatic. It's been causing me problems recently where: Car pulls off fine on start and drives fine for most of the time But sometimes, into the journey, starts feeling sluggish and slows right down when off accelerator - like I'm driving with a flat tyre or...

    So I purchased this 323i about 2k miles ago about 2 months ago. So I did put 2 thousand miles on it already. I've changed the oil 2 times in a month just to make sure its running clean oil. things were going great the engine ran smooth and the car was running slick on the road until about 2 days...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    My car doesn't seem to accelerate as well as it did when I first got it. Its missing that hard pull in the mid-range rpm's. It used to chirp the tires pretty well in second. Any ideas? 97 328is / 177K Also noticed that going up a hill in too high of a gear the car will surge a bit. Is...

    Right, first thanks for looking. I have a 320cd e46 with 94k miles on it. Had bmw inspection 2 at 90k or so. I notice a slight squeal when accelerating in 2nd gear. Its as if the car has alot of weight to pull. Its worrying. It is not smokey but due to the fact that I notice it is slightly...
  12. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I have a 2008 X5 - bought new, changed from a BMW 530 (E39). From day 1, I hated the way the X5 drove - did not feel like a BMW. So I ended up not driving it much (still has 20,000 KM on it). Recently I drove a friends X5 and it handled very differently. The BMW shop guys told me that the car...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have an 03 540i sport with 49K miles. The engine is often slightly rough and sluggish - I notice it especially when moderately accelerating in 2nd gear from 1.5K -> 2K RPM. 3 trips to the dealer haven't found or fixed the problem. The dealer has done a vacuum re-seal, fuel injector flush...
