Eliminate air idle controllers for E60 BMW M5?
Both my cars have a bad #2 air idle controller and one of them has a suspect #1 also.
I do a lot of ECU tuning (have an eddy current dyno, lots of experience, but on sportbikes) so I have the perspective that it's absolute BS that a throttle by wire car even needs air idle controllers... but... I'm not at all knowledgeable on tuning the ECU, haven't tried, although I do have access to the Alientech Titanium software to tune ECU's, but really haven't done anything of this sort. I'd like to turn off the functionality and block them off, don't care much about idle quality and have a flashed ECU anyway... everything on these cars is a damn mini computer networked to the rest of the car.
