    I've got a 2001 325i and have been having an idle problem as of late.

    I have had my 1989 325 for a couple of months. It has 175k miles and ran good, until recently the idle got really bad (only on some days). Now, when driving along at a constant speed it will lose power. It feels like it wants to die, but with the clutch in it will maintain an idle. Sometimes...
