    ive just recently acquired this car but its been in the family for about 17 years

    im not sure if it has a problem but maybe my current cars are making me think this way

    it seems to me that the car holds the revs up and the throttle is quite sluggish in response

    its been serviced quite regularly has 120k on it, still goes well but maybe it just the nature of the beast

    ive seen a few post on here regarding swapping out the intake manifold for a M50 one which made me

    think that the throttle response is a breathing issue

    thx in advance

    my 328i manual feels a bit slow in response too. the diesel golf i had pulled quicker. there is a lot of car to shift but does alright in the upper rev range. i have the M50 manifold too.
