    Who experiences delay throttle in their car?

    As a result of the electronic throttle?

    " delay throttle " ? ?

    save time

    save money

    get the car to a dealer for a fault code readout

    get it fixed properly

    or.................

    unless your wanted to say your gas pedal is sticking
    and then releasing causing a delay in go ?

    then you simply replace the go pedal -
    it'a an assembly that's held to the floor
    by a large plastic clip - which will break
    when you remove it, so get a new clip with
    the new pedal assembly. THAT you can just
    plug and play replace yerself

    for better help in the future, please try
    to be more complete with the details of your problem

    Re: delay throttle ? ?

    I'll bet the OP is talking about an artifact my wife and I noticed when we were test driving E46s before we bought one. EVERY Steptronic-equipped 3-series we drove had a slight hesitation (~1/2 second)when starting off from a stop. These were all dealer CPO cars test driven in 2004-2005, with low mileage. We ended up buying a manual gearbox car, and after reading about all the slushbox maladies the E46 has had, we are glad we did.
    Cheers,

    Mine doesn 't do that.

    If anything it zooms off with a little more verve than I sometimes intend. The fact I gots big heavy feets doesn't help!

    what car are you coming from?

    i notice a distinct difference between the throttle response on my E36 M3 and M Coupe to my E46 330i ZHP due to the transition from direct throttle linkage to throttle-by-wire. It's annoying, but adaptable...i heel-toe in the ZHP now with ease :)

    Bav auto has a gizom ($300) that is supposed to allow you to program out the delay.

    I do..I don't

    325 does not do it but my X3 does terribly. Dealer said "readings" were within normal range but I think BMW needs to tighten the range. Mine has gone from a customer satisfaction issue to a safety issue. Will be taking back to dealer this week. Look on the X3 board for more. I beleive there is a software upgrade but you need to press the dealer on that issue.

    Finally got error code on car and it was o2 sensor. Dealer called it camps sensor. Changed it out and all hesitation went away. Have your 02 sensor or vanos sensors checked out or at least wiped clean.
