lazy x3 throttle

I have a 09 X3 with extremely low mileage ... less than 30k ... when I first got it , i really hated the throttle response... at small throttle opening it is really lazy. you get to a slight incline and just squeeze the throttle a bit expecting the torque to just pull the thing up the hill and there is just nothing there... regardless of shift mode ... and I have to stomp the thing to make anything happen... then it rockets up the hill just fine. it runs at speed fine and if driven aggressively with lots of throttle and lots of revs its great but it is annoying to drive it normally. now... I know this is a fly by wire throttle and it strikes me as if the pot at the pedal may have a dead spot in it but does this sound familiar or reasonable ? is this a know issue ? there are no warning lights and no other bad behaviors of any sort. mileage is normal temps and pressures are normal. the other day , the throttle actually seemed to have no response at all. I was on a slight incline, stopped dead in traffic, traffic started to move and I stepped on the gas and it stayed at idle so I stepped again harder and further and away I went... car runs great except for this " dead spot at small throttle openings. ...
