Hi,

Recently purchased my 535i Automatic, and this is my first Automatic car.

When in any mode except "N" or "P" when at stand-still the car always tries to move, I have to keep my foot on the brake to keep it still. Is this Normal ? The car Idles at 900 rpm.

I can take my foot of the brake, and crawl along at about 5mph. It might be compeltely normal, but I was just a bit worried about Brake wear.

That's completely normal. I like to think of the brake in an auto as a combination of the brake and clutch in a manual.
