Mine acts the same way. I'm not positive but I think mine idles at 500 rpm also. FYI in the winter you'll notice that your bimmer will emit a lot more vapor than most cars.

1994 740il

Hello all, proud new owner of a 1994 740il 85,000 miles. Generally the car idles at around 500 when sitting in park. At times I feel the slight beginning of a shudder as if the vehicle is beginning to stall. It is not dramatic, just feels as if the car is idling just a bit low. No problems when driving whatsoever, the car performs beautifully. I noticed the problem initially in the morning, but it also seems to happen even if the car is warm. One time a check engine light came on for about 2 seconds and then went away, probably the coldest day of the summer. Any ideas if that idle speed is a little low, or what would be an easy fix, what I should check?

Any help would be appreciated.
