    Right so this is a while coming. The handbrake on all Bmw's I've ever driven is rubbish. Any car I've seen just scrapes past the nct also. As in really just about with a lot of adjusting pre test, and backing off again after. I never use the handbrake since its an auto, but every single...

    So there was hesitation/flat spot when excellerating, like a dip in power, no power at all then a bucket load all the way to the end of the gear. My Machanic said the fault code came up as a ‘knocking sensor’ he reset (what ever you reset) and says I have to drive 100-150mile to re learn what...

    Hi my 118d has done 145000 mainly faultless miles but I've noticed a slight lag sometimes on low speed acceleration. For example going around a junction in say 2nd gear if I lightly press the throttle there's a hesitation before it picks up. There's plenty of power so it's not, I think, a...

    Hi all. I've had my 330ci about 6 months now and am generally very pleased with it. However there are a couple of niggles that are really bugging me and spoiling the experience. It's a facelift 6 speed manual and has the dreaded off idle flat spot. So far, I have done the Vanos seals and...

    I run a 2000 530d with no performance modifications but recently I've noticed when driving a hesitancy at 2000rpm and it feels like the car is on some sort of elastic band, as it surges a little and only slowly will the speed increase. If I give it a heavy prod with the right foot it will kick...

    Hi all My 1999 (T) E39 530D manual has recently developed a flat spot between 1000 and 3000 revs. I posted re this the other day and have now got the codes read. Or rather the codes HAVEN'T been read.....because there aren't any. The machine used was a Bosch KTS 200, and it picked up that...

    Have 2003 E46 318 If sitting in traffic for more than a few seconds the car will not pull away cleanly, sputters with no power and then takes off, the longer it is sitting the worse it is, if left too long in a jam it will stall. If you just pull up to a junction and then pull away it will pull...

    New to the forum and have read so many posts about this but wounder if any can narrow it down for me. I have a flat spot/hesitation around 2000 revs. Can't feel it more in 2nd and 3rd... really hard to describe. Rolling along in 2nd accelerate (foot to the floor) it goes then at 2k it hits the...

    Hi, My 320d is being a bit strange when I put my foot down. It's fine for normal driving but sometimes when I accelerate hard the revs go down a little bit. The car is still speeding up but not as hard as it use to. It seems to be in the 2.5k rmp region. The first time it happened I thought the...

    Hi all! My girlfriend has a 2007 120d msport - 177bhp. It has never "put a foot wrong" in the 4 years we have owned it, but over the last few weeks she has noticed a flat spot around 1500-2000rpm. Only noticeable when labouring the engine, rather than driving hard up through the gears. It...

    Hi folks, I posted about a month ago regarding the intermittent issue I am experiencing so I will give a description of the fault below and the steps we have so far taken to try and remedy within my mates MOT station. I bought the car for next to nothing but can't afford to throw thousands at...

    Hi All, I have a M roadster and looking to tidy it up. There is a small scratch on the bumper and then a small spot of paint bubbling under the drivers wing mirror. I am not great when it comes to paint (it always runs or I make a mess of it) - So I am wondering if anyone can recommend someone...

    Hi everyone, Purchased myself a 316i this August and I'm slowly working through some issues with it. Today I replaced the old style timing chain tensioner with the revised one. The car has 120k on the clock. Now one thing that is absolutely puzzling me is an apparent rough spot in the engine...
