Since i've not posted in a while, this is in the M3 and no I don't want to post it in the M forum kthx.
The idle when still is rock solid. However, if I am moving at all and have the clutch in the idle jumps regularly from about 500rpms up to about 800-900 rpms. What gives? A vacum leak is what I am thinking, just haven't gone in to look at it...
This will also get that annoying "you've not posted in a while" from staying at the top of my screen while I troll for nekid pics in the member lounge.
have I stumped everyone? It is getting stranger. It doesn't do it all the time. If it does it, it does it as long as the car is on. After turning off the car and letting it sit, it may or may not do it the next time the car is on.

The strange thing is that it is only when the car is moving but the clutch is in. When the car stops (clutch still in) the idle goes back to rock solid. It's the strangest thing I have ever seen. And like I said, it doesn't happen every trip either. I'm thinking temperature might have something to do with it. Our weather has been any where between 30 and 75 since this thing has started.
