    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46

    I had a 500 mile trip to my parent's house for Christmas, after about 300 I noticed that with the cruise on at 70mph the revs would dip every now and then, by just the thickness of the needle. There was also a bit of a cattle grid noise between 63 and 66mph, which was only noticeable with the...

  10. Slight throttle hesitation at cruising speeds.

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I wonder if anyone can give me some insight. Just finished doing a long haul 14 hour trip (there and back) which gave me a golden opportunity to know my car a bit better, a 2001 320d. I found a very slight throttle lag when I was cruising at motorway speeds, almost an on and off switch when...
