Motor bogging

The problem is that my car feels like it's bogging when I drive. Right from 1st I can feel the motor struggle. Also I think my tach is off, I would be going 20mph and the needle would be at 4000. Has anyone had this problem and could offer me a solution? It's a 325i with a manual transmission.

Well, it's like I feel as if the tach is wayyyy off. If i were to take off in 1st and take it all the way to 7 i still wouldn't even go 40mph. In fact, the tach spins all the way around in a full circle as if i had no rev limit. That happened to me once and I don't even wanna try it again and risk blowing my motor up.

Sounds like your clutch is slipping.
