KInda a dumb newb question, but like when u put your foot down, (btw i drive an automatic)
like is it normal to hestitate for a second, like feel like it's pulling back then jet off?
like my car when u floor it while your moving , it like hesitates for a split second, then jumps into whatever gear, (not sure how auto's work) then it goes on, I mean i dont know if thisis normal, seems like it is, it's not like jerking, but like a split second hesitation before it does it's thing
Never drove an Auto BMW but your most likely culprit is clogged injectors, your getting tons of air when you goose it, but the fuel isn't getting in quick enough so your bogging out...... (it could the reverse as well)
To do list:
UUC System U TDM- 3/05
M50 manifold converstion 3/05
off to the tuning shop for custom software 4/05
Cams/lightened flywheel, throttlebody........ well lets see what happens
From what you say, it sounds like it's just b/c it's an auto. Even if it were stick, when you hit the clutch, shift, and ease off... that would still take around the same amount of time... For me at least.

Eh, a very BMW-critical person told me that my car has the best auto trans that he's ever seen... and he was actually very impressed (big deal for this guy). If it really seems bad, you should check it out...
well, you could run some fuel injector cleaning fluid through your car and also upgrade to a cai if you haven't already, if nothing else, the cai will give you quicker throttle response which is always great. but like they said there is probably alittle pause in all models, mine included, not just for autos.
