ISV question from new member/owner
Musta put tire chains on my 528 Bimmer about 30 times last winter
get out of my driveway. Quattro has saved me. I've always been
German car enthusiast - 6 VW's, 2 Porsches - bought my dad a 72
back in 72 - what a terrible car. Its no wonder that I stayed
for so long after that debacle. I am truly awed by the
and quality in my recent purchase. Several problems but I
such with the age and the milage. Replaced a steering rack using
instructions gleaned from this list. Guess I put off joining
of the scare of massive mail, but after reading through the
there is not that much junk - a real credit to the list.
Anyway, I have what appears to be the "common high idle problem"
I have unplugged the ISV and have run a few months using a lot of
heel/toe to keep from stalling at lights when the motor is cold.
guess I am just a cheap b*******, but other than the
is anyone aware of any other downsides to this mode of operation?
