Hi All,
It's night here in Sydney and I am doing an inspection II in the morning on my 89 535IA. My car has a small rough idle. I am going to do the valves as well and whats the best results you guys have got? The book says 0.30mm but have heard that 0.35mm gives better results on smoothing a rough idle? Any tips, ideas are welcome.

Thanks In Advance

TJ (off to bed now, big inspection II day tommorow : >)
