Mein Auto: 1995 530i
Rough Idle 1995 530i

Has a very rough idle and the check engine light is on at low rpm. Car has 111K miles. Not noticeable when driving normally. In fact, the check engine light is off until the car stops or slows to low rpm. Taking all suggestions for how to fix w/o paying a $100/hr. Thanks.
