Sticky throttle cable, cold start valve. Does it do anything different at
normal operating temperature? At normal temp does it "hunt" run erratically or
otherwise behave differently?
You could find someone with a fault code reader to find out BMW charge but an
independent might not.
Sir Hugh of Bognor
The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.
Many many things but try:
split vacuum pipe into inlet manifold somewhere (there's a mass of them
and they can get split or damaged from rubbing)
throttle idle position switch (mechanical one somewhere on cable -
perhaps near throttle butterfly valve)
debris in throttle butterfly assembly
air flow meter giving false reading (again - grubby? oily? if earlier
type or if heated wire type, then a simple failure)
Any running problems - poor power at any part of the rev range?
