Hi, I just picked up a 2008 328i E90 Sedan AT a week ago and already felt disappointed comparing to my 2004 E46 325i AT which has less power w/ 36k on the clock. I know they are all DBW but the E46 feels much more normal and acts very close to be like a traditional cable throttle. From driving on local street, I feel the acceleration is sluggish with light throttle from light-to-light traffic. I experienced a big delay/ dead spot on the very first second I stepped on the pedal slightly. It just felt like my old honda civic's gas pedal which is not adjusted regularly and resulted in a lot of free play. The E90 is a lot harder to drive comparing to the E46 because of this weird throttle behaviour. I have to guess when/where the throttle will start to respond to my input and this makes me uncomfortable to drive and as a result, I have to drive like a grandma because of lack of confidence to the car. Even my not-car-savvy girl friend immediately noticed that too the first time she drove the car so I know it must be really bad. I did a search and people complained about this but they mostly blamed on the DBW system. But since E46 was great, I think BMW screwed up on the software for E90? Is there a fix available to E90 yet? (reflashing the computer?) I am really upset as throttle response is really vital to how well a car drives. Thanks for listening to my complaints.
