I just bought my first BMW! But now I have big problem...
My BMW is from 1992., E36, 320i, 24v and it should fly! The engine sounds great :) but acceleration is veery poor! Well, it is not slow but it should be faster...
What should I check fist? What could be the problem(s)?

Please help me!

I did! Ronndyanne PM me the link. Only thing is that i was watching, on youtube, movies and it makes big noise when you accelerate, but my engine works soo nice i cant belive something is wrong :) But ill see with the mecanic because i dont know how to exchange the part anyways and it looks complicated... and i see that you need some special tool for it... maybe you know where i can find good a manual for doing that ? thank you !
