I have a 99' 540iA (sport) and don't have any particular spot where the power really dips. Is this just a 6 speed problem?
I have noticed the DSC kick in if I push the car too heavy in a turn or too hard off the line causes obvious shut-down of power. However, if your going straight and after the initial wheel spin (off the line) it pushes hard all the way with the 99 'auto'....
...and what a fun ride it is (even with the auto).
: I was just wondering if everyone see the big powerband HP/Torque loss from 4k to 5k rpm.
: It is alsmost sombody is hitting the brakes. My 540i 6sp has 18k miles now.
: Anbody played with chips and cold air intake, did this problem go away.I have heard the power band is not nice and flat, would like to make it that way.
