Exclamation Strange problem with 325is

When i first start the car it will idle fine but once i start to drive away it will bog-down but the engine wont stall or anything it just bogs. then, once the engine warms up a bit, it will run fine and feels like it did when i first got it. every once-in-a-while when i take a 30 min. or so ride around the area it will start boggin down. its fine if im just barely giving it gas but once i hit the gas hard its as if im half-way with the gas pedal. i narrowed it down to either the Throttle Position Sensor or the Idle Speed Regulator. can someone help me out?

How long since the ignition system has been serviced? Has the intake boot been checked for cracks? When idling, the M20 throttle is closed; idle air supply is by way of the idle bypass (fairly easily seen on the throttle body).

isnt the idle by-pass the same thing as the idle speed regulator?

It's actually a fixed, separate intake bypassing the throttle section. It's easy to see it on the throttle body.

silversled can only hope to improve
I would most certainly do the obvious cheap things to clear this one....check wires and so forth, do a tune up (start with the plugs only) and keep moving forward...my guess is either a coolant temp sensor or an air leak as mentioned previously...good luck
