Exclamation Need help on engine stall when cold start

Once in awhile when cold start the engine stumbles and went into to a stall with no code show, restart and everything goes fine. It happen to me 5 times in my half year ownership... the bmw service said they can't do anything to it without code. anyone got any ideal for the problem?? BTW, mine is a 535i.

Never had it happen in 20,000 miles. Are you using a high quality, top tier fuel?

Sounds like an extreme offshoot of the more common stumbling / varying idle issues experience by several 535 owners. My idle ramps up and down between about 500 and 1,500 RPM at warm startup. Not cool (dealer said it was "normal").

Thanks for the reply. I am using premium fuel... ! My dealer said they want to do something about it but they don't know where to look into without any codes.
