Hi All, I have had my 1983 320i in storage and driving it this week. At cold start it takes 3 or 4 times to get it to fire and once running it pops and chugs attempts to stall when you hit accelerate. After a bit it tends to run real smooth like you flick a switch. Trying to isolate this issue because once going down the road it runs beautiful and only really does this at some stop lights etc. Any direction to look? It's kind of annoying haha

Check all the vacuum hoses and intake rubber bits. Poor idle that seems to go away at speed points to vacuum leaks.
