: Hello all,
: There seems to be a momentary "spool up" when starting
: from a stoplight in my automatic E46. Seems like first
: gear is not engaged quickly when the gas is depressed.
: Is this normal? Have others experienced it?
Maybe your brakes not releasing completely? Is fluid topped up (certainly hope so!)? Your "spool up" is not typical and probably indicates a problem. My 323i's automatic is "instant on", and in my mind, is the best automatic available on ANY car.
