I'm not trying to be contrary, but I don't consider this "normal". When I take my foot off the gas, I expect the RPM's to drop, irregardless of whether the car is drive-by-wire or has a mechanical linkage. Also, at least in my case, it does not happen ALL THE TIME. This indicates to me that yes, there could be a problem of some sort. At any rate, I always enjoy reading everybody's input, yours included.

: This topic has been previously discussed over and over and over... :-) The verdict is yes this is the behavior of the throttle by wire in the new E46.
