I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated.
Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
if the car is bogging down on acceleration I would suspect most likely a failing fuel pump or airflow sensor, possibly a neglected air filter (don't know if this is the case or not)
if no warning lights are on, you will need to have a proper diagnostic carried out with a BMW/MINI factory diagnostic computer so that all inputs and outputs from the engine management system can be monitored in real time to identify where the issue lies.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
