320d rev limiter and black smoke

Recommended Posts

Guys, my 2003 320d seems to hit the rev limiter at approx. 4000rpm, it also black smokes a bit when accelerating hard.

A mate of mine had a 2001 320d a couple of years ago and his would rev all the way through the red line so I would expect mine to at least go up to the red line (not that I want to rev it that hard).

It has 106k on the clock, recent full service with all filters, new vortex filter and flaps removed , other then this it seems ok.

Is this normal or am I looking at a problem?
