low idle
 
My 86 535i seems to have an extremely low idle speed. It sometimes shuts of at idle. Car runs great otherwise. Any advice would help. Thanks.

What kind of maintenance has been done? I'd start by looking for vacuum leaks and then clean the Idle Air Control valve and all the passages it connects to. Try that and see if anything improves.
