Hi Everyone,

I took my car to Toronto BMW to have them look at my transmission which during cold start, when shift from P to D, there is a delay. It felt like the car's gear was not catching and the car rolls back. About 20 seconds, the car drives fine.

Anyways, I took the car in for that problem and the tech at BMW told me that they have to reprogram the engine. They performed an EGS engine update.

They solve my original problem but now I noticed another issue. Whenever the car is around 80km, I noticed there is a light hum in the engine and the gas peddle feels heavy. I need to give a a good push on the gas peddle for the car to move. Just wondering if this is normal? The car itself drives smooth just this little annoyance about the gas peddle feels heavy around 80km/h range. My car is a 2003 325i with 28000 km.

Thanks guys,
