    Hi guys, As the title suggests, my 58 plate E92 325i has decided to start idling pretty rough and lighting up the yellow engine light when starting her up from cold. Once she's warm and up to temperature, she's back to running like a dream, just when the engine's cold. I read the fault codes...
