All of this talk about the powerband loss got me wondering. With so many reporting it, it seems to be a real thing.
But, I have not seen it on my '99 540I6. I pushed the car the last few times I drove it. Saw nothing but smooth pickup up to redline in first several gears. Took the car to 120. No apparent loss of power: continuous and strong acceleration.
Has anyone with a '99 seen the problem? The engine is a bit different with the addition of VANOS.
I know if this issue develops with my car I will be as frustrated as the others that have seen this. Keeping my fingers crossed.
