I went to the archive and found a message on October 28th, 1999 that suggests checking the TPS and the Idel Control Valve. I'm going to check both because my 84 528e idles at 670 rpms at stop lights, but has no prob starting. You might want to check the fuel pump, too. (just a guess, tho)

Hello to any&everyone!
Need help/assistance. When cold my BMW (84 528e) takes a while to turn over (and i mean a while). It's basically okay once warmed up. Do i need new plugs and wires? I've only owned her for 3 months, so i don't know all her details. Secondly, she idles really rough well below the 1000x when stopped ..any suggestions?!
thanx in advance
