Hey all, recently bought a 52 plate 330ci sport, service history to 116k now on 137k of which I've driven a max of 150 miles... it' a weekend play thing which over all just needs some tlc.
Anyway on to my issue. Driving into town today pulled off at some lights with probably around 4/5000rpm (didn't pay attention just tried to pull away fairly quickly). didn't dump the clutch but close to it. The car was moving but very slow, went to change into 2nd and it was like nothing happened no crunches or noises just revs, put it to 3rd same thing but slowly came back to speed. Pretty sure it was the clutch slipping, but the lack of problem changing gears confused me... then I noticed the smell... my rear brakes were stinking! (No I didn't have the handbrake on) there was no smell from the front of the car when I pulled over just the rear wheels... what do you guys think could be the issue Here? Seized brakes? Diff? Clutch? All of it? The reason I'm asking you guys right now is I'm aware there is a clutch delay but I'm not sure if that would be the cause.
Since the moment I've had the car it's driven perfectly even had a garage check it over before buying it. I'm aware the rear disks need changing anyway which is what I was on my way to buy today.
