It sounds like you have an intake or boost leak of some sort. I assume the 320d is a turbo diesel. You will likely need to get someone with a smoke machine to try and find the air leaks. This makes sense since you mentioned you can't "launch" at higher RPM which sounds like the boost that the turbo is making is leaking before getting to the throttle bodies and cylinders.
