      When I first got my 5 I was experiencing idle
      problems. I purchased a new intake bellows, and then
      made sure that all hoses were sealed and had to adjust
      my throtle control while I was running in order to
      "reign" it in. Make sure your oil dipstick is in all
      the way with a proper seal as this can affect idle
      speeds as well. Hope this helps somewhat.

      1984 533i and
      after changing all components that i thought were
      related to the
      idle, i found a resistor inline on the positive side
      of the
      connector for the coolant temp sensor. i reconnected
      it and the
      problem went away, but my idle is still a little high,
      steady!!! try it and let me know how it goes...
