Mr M Coupe

I was driving today and decided to floor my M Coupe just to stretch its legs... <br>Well, the car sped up to the light, but then as I stopped the RPM's were hanging at around 2500...... <br>My leg was off the gas, but the traction control was off.....<br>I tried to switc on the tractions contorl and then off just to see if the rpm's will drop....but nothing happened...<br>After a few seconds....everything was normal.....<br>I tried to floor it again, but it did not pull that hard... <br>What's wrong.. <br>Is there a current bulletin on it or...??!?!?!<br>Help... I want my baby to be fine again.. <br>Thanks .... <br>Mr M coupe

In this month's Road and track they did a short take on the new 3 series coupe. They said that the double vanous (sp) caused the revs to drop more slowly than before, as if it had a heavier fly wheel. This may be what you are experiencing, or I may be talking a load of bull.<br>Bill

The problem is caused, anecdotally, by OBD-II. Other market's cars are not saddled with this ridiculous federal requirement, but the new E36s do have heavier flywheels and are slow to idle down. I fear you may have to learn to drive around this idiosyncracy.<p>Andy T<p><i>: In this month's Road and track they did a short take on the new 3 series coupe.

I meant to say new E46s, of course. <p>AT<p>: ... the new E36s do have heavier flywheels...<br>
