Hey, I'm new here.
What is there that I could change/replace in the car that would re-gain lost power from my 328i?
Excluding spark plugs/ spark plug wires. or air filter. I changed oil on it very frequently.
Is there common problems with these engines loosing power?
Here is my story...
About 2 years ago, I got a 98 328i 4 door had about 70miles on the odometer, the car had the fastest response and incredible acceleration. It is Automatic. I was smoking civics, jettas, Corrados, and 250hp lexus ls400's... yes its AUTOmatic.
Top speed I reached with it was 255km/hr. (160mph) oh, and I reached this on a stretch of approximately 3/4 of a mile (1km) or so.
I never got 1/4 mile time or any time for it.
I then Got a Corrado Vr6, and I had it since.
The 328 went on to my non-mechanically inclined younger brother.
He Fucked it up Somehow.
Now the car has 110,000miles on it... The car does not accelerate as fast anymore.
A goddamn civic Sir's nose is a few feet ahead of the 328 until we get to about 100km/hr then I start leading away... (i used to smoke the exact same sir Off the line by 4 or 5 car lengths, he did not mod it at all since).
The 328i was doing 11L/100km before and now it still does the same.
(The response messed up- it's response isn't as quick... before - I woudl from standing in the spot Floor it and the car woudl Shoot like a rocket, now it still shoots but slowly, and it doens't have a Constant pick up like it used to.)
Something with the acceleration messed up - I dont know what, it doesn't burn oil or anything, its still moderately quick, but the SIR is about 3 car lengths ahead and a 98 2.0L Jetta is 2 car lengths faster from about 0-60 km.
Oh and top speed is about 230km/hr now. and it takes a Lot longer to Get there and it REALLY PISSES ME OFF!
Anyone have any info on what it could be? Any Similar Stories???
Help I want this car to regain its power and rape those ShitVICs again
Oh I do have Engine Check Light that is litten up , But It was litten up Ever since I had the car.
THANKS, Appreciate it.
