ok i have posted about this a few days ago and didnt get much feed back so i thought i would try it again. i own a 325e and am haveing toruble with it idleing....when i start it it idles fine no problem but say i drive it for a few and it starts to warm up it sometimes wants to idle just above 0 and tries to die...this doesnt happen all the time. i have looked at the intake hose and dont see any cracks. doesnt mean there arent any cause i havent taken it all the way off. does everyone think thats what it is or could there be something else that causeing this proble...Please help this is driving me crazy....thanks

If the intake is original, it's very likely to be the issue.

ICV is the idle control valve. But M20's (certainly the 2.5i) actually have an idle throttle by pass. You can see it, a small tube like a throttle right next to the actual throttle section which is fully closed at idle.
