i got a 325is auto , when i mash on the gas my power doesnt feel present until after 3500 rpm, thats when it really picks up, is it just how all bmws are or is it cause an auto, or a little of both, the car really pulls hard after like 50 but getting to 40 or 50 its not that quick, is it cause these motors are torque monsters like harleys
You think yours is bad!
my 318 makes NO power...I mean none wil like 4,000 rpm.
I wish I had the mid power of an inline six.
My borther has one, nice power curve

its know fact no low end power(torque),its a 6 cylinder, i added a performance chip to my 95 325is auto, it definitely helps.....but these cars run alot better from mid-high rpm range, no doubt...........

Alrighty...my 94is 5spd....has intake w/heatshield,UUC tse2 catback,Dinan chip etc. Hauls azz in the midranges etc....My ?? is I tried to pin it once but notice that my speed is at 120mph and my RPM is at 5000k. The manual says topspeed is 128mph....WOW thats it?!!! My 91 prelude topped off at 135. Even with my govenor removed! What can I do to make go higher? different higher gears? wheres that at? in the tranny or at the rear differentials? LOC? Also should I just put in a M3 tranny for higher speed ratio...what year shall I get it from? Sorry thanks in advance.
Different 5th gear...hmmm sounds like the alot of work and $$$ I'd be better off with a used m3 tranny? Oh yeah I don't fly up in the 130mph+ much at all. I just wanted to have it just incase when times comes and I want to run with the bigboyz, vettes, other Ms etc. lol
