Does anyone know the procedure for reseting the base idle?
I know that you have to jumper the 3 wires of the TPS, but should the engine be running? Just ingition on? Do you have to adjust the base idle with the brass screw, while keeping the 3 wires jumped?

yes ,with the engine running (at operating temp)and the three wires at the tps jumpered together set the idle to 800RPM with the brass screw.shut engine off while jumpering the switch though and restart(do not use to large a wire to jumper as this may permanently bend the connector's leaving a loose connection),also shut off to remove jumper's.
or you could buy BMW's way overpriced tool # 13 4 010
