Default Rough idle NO Change in rpm

Hello all,

My daughters car is a 96 318ti . The idle is a little rough but the rpm is stable at 800-900. Should it be higher? Why the rough seeming idle with no fluctuating idle? I am new BMW but love the car as it has a cool California roof. Thanks ahead

start removing at air box, remove/inspect and clean, thru throttle body, then remove plenum and change out the pcv-ccv. use new gasket and vacuumn hoses. only use mass air flow cleaner when you do the maf sensor, and carb cleaner is ok for the AFN - IAC -tps. Replace the air filter too. Cleanliness is King. After you've put her all back together, Enjoy your run like new Toy! I Love taking things apart! use tooth brush & Q-tips Watch some DIY 's on utube.

Howdy! You may want to check the motor mounts as well. They do wear out on cars this old and can cause some drivetrain vibration. Good luck!
