When changing gear the revs are holding for just a second which means you can't do quick gear changes. I thought this might be to do with the extra reciprocating mass of a 6 cyl as I'm used to a 4 cyl but after watching others on youtube I think it might be a fault with my car.

I don't think its a sticking throttle cable because that would usually make the engine over rev between gear changes.

When going from first to second, especially if I giving it some, it seems like I have to wait ages for the revs to drop before I lift the clutch.

Anyone else had this?

Do that first, i had the same prob on my 325. I cleaned the throttle and it made a difference but still wasnt perfect.
I ended up changing the throttle position sensor to cure it :thumbsup

I've got a few scrappers round here, worth getting a new sensor or scrappers be fine you think? I'll probably get one because even if it has improved after cleaning the tb I'll still wonder if it could be better...

You have a pedal position sensor here http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=CC32&mospid=47446&btnr=35_0165&hg=35&fg=15

Otherwise the rest is built in with the diesel pump
