a bad O2 sensor will give u a check engine light??
I would suggest to whoever owns a BMW to have a scan tool in hand.

i have two out of 4 o2 senstors busted, but i didnt really notice a idle difference. but i do have a idle problem, i think its the alternator, the idle gets worse as i power more things, like fog lights or power windows.

When I had a bad O2 sensor all I got was the CEL. My friend had a bad ICV (idle control valve) and it made his revs go up and down like crazy. Mine is starting to go bad so the revs jump from time to time.

You can do the pedal test on yours to get the code. My brother's celica had the same syptoms and it was a dirty AFM.

edit: here's a link, although you mentioned you're not getting an engine light.
