Acceleration delay
By cruzer on


2002 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


I want to love this car, but there is a
signicant delay in the acceleration
response. I was told by the dealership
mechanic that this is a "problem" with
the 2002's - a redesign that removed
the cabling and now uses electionics
instead. Most noticable when road
conditions require a quick
acceleration, a few times left me
questioning the saftey of
this "ultimate driving machine." I was
told by the dealer that a half-second
delay is acceptable (I can hit the
floor with the pedal and bring it back
up before the engine responds).
