Over Revving when changing up a gear

Post by Unreal688 » Mon Sep 11, 2017 1:45 pm

Right. Ive got a manual 140i, Not sure if anyone else has experienced this but when Im giving it the beans sometimes when I change up the car keeps revving even though my foot is off the throttle pedal completley. So the clutch is down and the car still revs and it sounds awful. Like when you miss the gear. Once back in gear and back on the throttle its fine. Its like the cars not responding to me lifting off the throttle quick enough. Sounds stupid I know but it is annoying me. I had a manual 135 before this and that never did anything like that.
