I test drove a 97 328i and the car was impressive, the gas pedal was a bit different than what I am use to it's almost like a two stage pedal.
When I was driving the car the owner told me to floor it to see what it had when I did at 35mph the car broke traction(the tires spun) when it up shifted at about 50mph, to me it was no big thing until the owner asked me what I did wrong, so I did it again. The car did shift @ 6500 rpm and the owner said that I took it past the red-line.
He also said that the "brake booster" might need to be replaced at about $1000, the bakes did feel soft.
Does this sound normal for this vehicle?
Any and all comments would be appreciated.
