1988 325i Converible Is Comming Along Nicely And Outside Of Continous Detailing And Cleaning... (apparently That Is Never Ending For Ocd Bimmer Owners) Whenever The Gas Pedal Is Pressed The Rpm Lowers And Car Almost Stalls Out? With Rising Gas Prices And All, Low Octane Fuel Is Only Option But Should Not Cause The Car To Sputter/stall/ And Feel Like It Is Going To Shut Off. When It Kicks In Though Hold Onto Your Horses Because The Engin Kicks In And Launches You! Any One With Experience With This Any Advice Would Be Appreciated! Thanx!

I had that problem..
Running rich was the problem...

It basically was the ICV was dirty and clogged... Also I did a tune up and boom... it flies now with no bogging down! Check the ICV and clean it out...

All About The Intake! Had Replaced Stock Intake With Makeshift Short Air And Heat Shield As Described In This Site... Once I Replaced My Homemade Intake With The Stock Intake... It Resolved The Sputter/stalling Issue! Fuel Filter And Icv Had Been Replaced Earlier And Ruled Out Fuel Transfer Issues. Thanks For The Different Ideas/ All Helped To Point Me In The Right Direction! I Appreciate The Advice!

reset the computer. disconnect the battery and reset that thing. im thinking that since you went from a cold air intake to stock, the computer itself is doin a rich fuel mixture. try it out, its free.
