In 3rd gear, for some reason my car loses rpm's, like around 4,000 rpms in 3rd gear it drops to like 3500-3700 rpms and then goes back up, this is in manual or automatic mode, and I'm for sure that it's in 3rd gear and not shifting to 4th, because it loses the rpms gains them again and then eventually shifts into 4th, i want to know if this is something i should look into as a problem or if the 318TI was designed this way for some reason, it's really annoying and causes a loss of acceleration right in the middle of 3rd....
