midi is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
A friend of mine just bought a new M3 and I noticed that when he starts it up the RPMs cycle between about 1000 and 1100/1200 RPM, a symptom I've always referred to as 'hunting.'

I told him I didn't think it was normal, but not owning an M3 I really wouldn't know. So, is it normal?

Thanks,
Jeff

It is probably just a warm up feature for the car until it completely warms up. It runs the engine a little high for a few minutes until the optimal engien temperature is reached, then it will calm down.
