Tim,

The car idles at about 800rpm, fairly consistant whether it's in Drive or in Park/Neutral. It doesn't seem too high...but it does feel like it wants to GO...

: These cars have some balls, and if it's idling too high, it WILL pull harder than you want at first, not to mention excessive brake wear/strain/whatever...

: Tim Collins
: '90 535i 5-speed
