Mein Auto: 1985 Euro E24 auto
My E24 Euro wont idle under 1100 RPM......

Any ideas? I cleaned and re-lubed up the IAC (no change), I sprayed everywhere with starter fluid (no change in idle speed), swapped out the airflow meter(no change), i swapped out the ECU (no change), and replaced the two flywheel sensors(no change). The car ran fine until i hit a huge dip in the road, the suspension bottomed out, and the oil pan made contact with the road. After having a prof mechanic do the oil pan, it now runs like this. It also shuts off the fuel while driving a constant speed until you move the pedal again. I belive it is running to lean, like a vacuum leak or cracked intake manifold, but I cant seem to figure it out!?!?!?! I'm getting annoyed trying to fix it! Any ideas? PLEASE?!?!?!!?

You've posted that in the E63/E64 forum. You need to put it in the E24 forum. Maybe the E63/64 moderator can move it for you.
