    Hello guys and girls

    Recently picked up a e36 318is coupe after having to sell my VX220, damn credit crunch!!

    So, anyway i have a few questions about a couple of problems i have..

    1) what is the correct idle speed? mine idles at around 700-800rpm when cold, and 1000-1100 when warm?

    2) The electric window on passenger side stopped working - it won't move when i open the door either? im guessing its the microswitch?

    3) The previous owner put on some 18" bmw alloys.. does anyone know the correct tyre pressure for these? i believe they are m3 replicas.


    Thanks

    Jonny G.

    If you ask your questions in the relevant sections you'll get far more answers
    I'd suggest posting them in the E36 section
