Hi All

i am a first time BMW owner , I bought a 1997(sep) 318 iS COUPE .
There is only 48k miles on the clock ( can this be genuine) . The bodywork is in perfect condition as is the interior and the car drives great ( I do find it a bit slow though ) .
Here is my main question , when I engage the gear lever to D (drive) or R(reverse) the car tries to pull away without me touching the accelerator pedal.
Is this the way it should be ? ( I own a new Citreon grand picasa automatic and after engaging a drive gear I also need to put my foot on the accelerator before it will pull away !!! .


Thanks for any replies

Tam

It is normal for most cars to move under engine idle alone in gear.

yes although your idle may be too high but you cant do anything about that since it is computer controled... Unless on the 4 cylinders there is an adjustment screw? correct me if there isint but i highly dought it
