Last Saturday I bought a '95 325 convertible (automatic) and a '93 325 sedan (5-speed) . The convertible seems very sluggish compared to the sedan...is this due to the transmission, or is there more that i should be concerned about? Also I'm getting a "brake circuit" warning....is this a known issue? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

There is most likely a difference in the 2 because of one being a standard and one being auto but also covertibles are usally heavier.

If it is a power hood then the mechanism to run it weighs about as much as the car!

Automatic trannies are pathetic too and make the car far slower (noticeably)

Sell the auto and buy another manual
