    Sluggish response of my Car

    I noticed when I press of the gas pedal there's a sluggish delay of the acceleration and the car feels heavier when driving. It didn't feel like this before. Is there a software update to fix this? Is this worth bringing it up to my service advisor to have it looked at? Anybody else feel this also with their 335i?

    My 6-speed is a rocket. There may be some lag in the automatic. Might want to fill up at another gas station. Bad gas=poor acceleration.

    Did you recently go to the dealer for service?

    Please note that one of the recent ECU software updates resulted in more turbo lag, in an effort to solve some blow-off valve rattles.
    If you went to the dealer, they installed it by default. Ensure you get the Febuary update, which supposedly is better.

    I heard BMW were having issues with the turbos ...

    ... is it really that bad?

    And the bad gas thing is a "BMWism", unless you are filling the tank with vegie oil it is just BMW Bullshlt IMO to cover the Service Centre's incompetence

    I would say instead that BMW is having trouble with pansy owners that think they bought a luxury car that should be as quiet as a Caddillac or Buick, and complain when they hear a little rattle from the blow-off valve, or a little tire slap from the HP tires, or wind noise when they get above 80 mph.

    I totally agree. If you want quiet by a Lexus and take a nap through the next 4 years of car ownership.
