hi i have just purchased an 2.2 z3 convertible had it 2 weeks.
when driven sedately it changes up and down the box ok. but when you floor it the revs go round the clock,there's no power and it won't change gear unless you back off the throttle. bad when you want to overtake, wife's 2.0 skoda diesel goes much quicker. what is causing this and is it repairable?
thanks all
barney
