Does everyone really think there's a delay w/ all DBW cars? My 325i doesn't seem to have any delay. I have noticed that 330s w/ automatic transmissions exhibit delays-- but i've never noticed it on any of the manual cars-- especially 325s. In fact, I think my DBW feels more responsive than the 323s and 328s i've driven. I would still prefer a better pedal feel-- but I think once my sticky pedal is replaced-- i'll be very happy w/ it.

Yes, I do.

Every time I've let my sister drive my car, she *****es about the throttle lag, too. (I'd never even mentioned it to her beforehand.)

Another pointless discussion. DBW is here to stay so quit biotchin and shutup an drive. Too many broken records round here. :rolleyes:

My E46 M3 blips the throttle very well. My old 325 didn't do quite as well - there was a delay as people have said. But it wasn't so bad. It certainly seems it's possible to get it right (as with the M), and I also think that dbw lends itself to finessing the pedal a bit more.

My 01330ci step was a little frustrating when trying to shift. The lag was there in the acceleration too, but when it get's going, it's pretty good. I wish the pedal was a little more resistant. That first 2cm of travel is like the safety valve so we don't wreck folks. heh
I feel that the transmission software from Dinan does help,as does their Engine Software as it pertains to shift lag. Even with these mods, the lag exists, I solve it mostly by downshifting the step. I deal with it...it's a great car and wouldn't trade it back for my 91 pathfinder and whatever linkage it had. I want to get into autox and all that good stuff, and take classes before I get my desired M3

Gotta get some gold wires so the signal to the pedal is the best, Monster Cable that thing Hans! ;)
