Sorry, I copied and pasted my other thread on Bimmerforums: Does anyone have a choppy throttle pedal? Mine is so bad that there is no "ease on the gas". My throttle has two modes: On or Off. I drove someone else's E30 today and maaaaan was it so smoooooooth. I could see myself driving my car absolutely perfectly with no head banging at every shift if my pedal was that smooth. Would anyone know what would cause this? I'm very suspicious of my accelerator tension spring as shown here, item # 12: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...23&hg=35&fg=10 I WD40'd the hell out of it and it helps a very small amount, but is still choppy at first and gets just as bad in a few minutes as it was before. Someone pleeeeeeeeease tell me you've had this problem and fixed it, and what the fix was!!!
