E39 Manual gear box 1st gear torque limiter?
I have a 1998 528i and when i push it in 1st gear, it's almost like the car holds back, RPM goes up but the car does not move quickly.
The moment I put it into second gear or higher it's fine.
I heard that BMW may have put a limiter in 1st gear to keep it smooth when accelerating, and that it can be disabled.
Is this true? Or what else could be the problem?
