thanks all

Hey guys, thanks for the welcome(s).......the help I need I guess is find a decent bimmer-loving mechanic who wont rip giant holes in my purse (read purse...) and is somewhere in London. My beautiful E30 is playing up, the usual probs in idle (this is not my first) revs up and down, dropping out and stalling, had the valves cleaned and timing checked, was better for a few days but now have this horrible shudder and the smell of petrol is strong. It may be the vacuum, but even as a non-blonde, my skills underneath the bonnet are in development. Any advice and finger pointing in the right direction (and not to point and laugh) would be most welcome...
Wish I'd found this site earlier, its bloody great

It started a few weeks back when the revs went mad in idle, not in park only in drive (auto), the valves were cleaned and all good again for 2 weeks, then started again, same thing sitting in traffic rev's going wild up and down then dropping below 5000 and cutting out. Then had it tuned up and 2 days later it was sluggish on pulling out, surging in idle (both drive and park, but much worse in drive) surging is like heavy breathing or slow cough which made me think vacuum, i can see the front end going up and down when sitting in traffic and then i got the smell of petrol, pretty rough right now, so its sitting outside awaiting some TLC.....its not cutting out anymore though...
