well i kinda correct Edwin here.
When we started the car it was idling at around 900rpms, then rev started to falll and when it almost stalled car reved by itself to like 1200rpm, then went back to 900, 5sec after same thing. it was doing that over and over. Sfter about 5min car stopped doing that

i think it happens sometimes on e46s....is it an auto?
it revs the engine up a bit when the revs get too low so it doesnt stall...
i would avoid it though..seems like abnormal amount of fluctuation
