  • Manual transmission
  • miles
On the Z3 2.3 manual transmission model the computer causes the engine to keep revving after the throttle is released, sometimes for 2 or 3 seconds. The dealer said all Z3 2.3 moldels do this. I feel this is unsafe as it requires extra attention when shifting because it does not occur consistently. The dealer stated that there are aftermarket computer chips that will fix this, I feel the manufacturer should fix this.
