Engine Idle RPMs?

Guys, what is the normal engine idling RPM on a M54 engine and does it changes on the cold start? Mine sits at about 650-750RPM and in cold goes nearly 1500RPM, is that normal?

Guys, a few E60 owners are having a common problem explained here http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...826&highlight=

Solution seems to be engine idle RPM (warm not cold). I would like to request the E60 owners to post there warm/hot/not cold engine idle RPM please, so I can find out what should be the normal idle of a M54 engine on the E60's.

My current warm idle - 648 to 662 RPM

Thanks in advance.
