I have been in many a car and nothing really gets up and goes at 70mph. Also most of your power is going to be after 3500 rpm with alot of cars(thats why people "launch" while racing). You could have something wrong it is hard to tell, but it could also be your perception fo the car. It is not going to be a real fast car. I am not even sure my dads M3 had a whole lot of power at 70 mph, but it has been a while since i drove that.

Unless your used to driving something with over 300 horses, i would say theres something wrong with your car. The 6 cylinder bimmers arent really considered 'gutless', although they arent all THAT fast either.

My 328 seems to wake up around 2700 RPM. Real torque doesn't come in until 4k, where the peak torque is.
The ASC handles traction control. If it isn't working right it, will limit torque to prevent wheel spin which isn't happening.
