E46 jumpy throttle

I have an 03 325i and it seems like the throttle off idle is really quick. It also seems like it idles a little to slow too.

Are you the original owner ? If not, there`s always the possibility that a previous owner installed a Sprint Booster, Shark, or some other aftermarket gizmo. Have the codes read to see if anything shows up there.

Jumpy idle is pretty much the opposite of the usual E46 throttle complaints... so I agree with Bob, see if there's anything installed that would make it jumpy
