The one and ONLY odd thing is does it is when your foot is off the gas pedal then you stomp on it... there is a short (1/2 sec) delay before it really goes for full power. My guess is this is a stupidity check to keep people from ramming into their garage wall. It is like the computer says… full throttle…. Are you sure… well OK you got it.
EDIT: WHEN MY 330Ci...Compared to the E36 and E46 M3 the engine is just not able to rev as quickly. I do not think it's slower rev speed is the fault of drive by wire, I think it has to do with mechanical differences. Maybe it is nothing more than a heavier fly-wheel?
Once you are on the gas and driving like at an autox cross I find the E46 DBW system to be very precise and satisfactory to my needs. Honestly no complaints at all for competition use.
