Update...

After covering over 1000 miles since the reset at Darren Woods the idle is stil lrough and jumping from 600 - 750rpms when left to idle for anything more than 30 seconds.

I ordered a BT cable from Neil at Juiced up Tuning earlier this week so should have it next week to try the below Mr5's adaptation resets.

I'll report back as soon i've done it.

Hi all. I have recently purchased a 335i and unfortunately having the exact same problem. I was wondering if anyone ever got to the bottom of this. The idles actually looks steady on around 600rpm but you feel random hicups which can otherwise be described as a feeling of small misfires. Shakes the car firmly but not violently enough to make passengers think its a massive problem. Shortly after a few hicups/misfires the car automatically raises the idle to around 750rpm and it stays there. The only way to get rid of it is if I switch the car on/off or sometimes a bit of hard driving does it as well. any solutions besides adaptation resets? I have done adaptation resets via 1. battery disconnection for prolonged period 2.BMW INPA software via OBD 3.JB4 adaptation reset option

Does anyone know if that reset will wipe out any current "remaps" on the car?....

Amin, just pm'd you!!

There is seemingly no fix for this common issue. I've tried every adaptation known to man, injectors, coils, plugs, head decarb and have never fixed the problem.

I got an improvement when I replaced all injectors and double checked plug gaps but it still has a slight idle hiccup which will bump up the revs to 750 rpm after a minute or two on idle. I made a decision to live with it and move on many months ago and I suggest you do the same as you'll end up very frustrated and massively out if pocket chasing it!

Thanks H, I read your pm. Your input is greatly appreciated and I think I am going to take your advice and leave it as it is. Every single parameter looks fine, no codes, no hesitations, power delivery is good. I have also replaced plugs, checked my coils and changed 1 of them which was only a little weaker than the others but I am sure it was most probably fine. I checked my injectors via the BMW INPA software and they are all within spec and running perfectly. I also checked for any injector recalls with BMW. As you mentioned changing the plugs and making sure they are correctly gapped helped smooth it out. If anyone has a permanent logical fix for this I am all for it but until then I think I am done chasing it. Its mentally and financially exhausting chasing this rather minor imperfection.

Is this fix only for 335's? I am planning to change my plugs soon and I wonder if I need to reset anything via BT tool. I wonder if I can use the TORQUE APP for this reset if this applies to me. Anyone??

Walnut blasting seems to be the common cure for lumpy idle.

Already been done,only started after changing plugs( genuine parts).All coils and injectors been replaced and programmed a month ago.
I did a walnut and changed the coils/plugs immediately started lumpiness at idle then jacks up to 750rpm.i thought was something I had done so rechecked everything,but all ok.Reset adaptions but still same.Changed all 6 injectors and coded but still same.Folk are saying it's the DME not adapting to new plugs properly.
