Question Winter is killing me

Hi,

I have a 1987 325i and she starts up well in the cold weather but today being colder than normal I have noticed that she almost dies if I move the car out of park and when I idle at stop signs and lights she almost wants to give out..
I was wondering if anyone might be able to offer some insight into what the problem might be.

Much thanks!

The e30 dislikes the cold. Might try a lower weight oil and/or let the car warm up before you go and drive it.

Cover the engine at night with a thick blanket, helps loads.
