Out of interest was this anything to do with the fault code stored? (That you mentioned previously?)
not that I could tell
After some more thought...yes, possibly.
Since I have completed the valvetronic adaptation reset, that lambda fault has not re-occurred

It's always satisfying to find a fix? :thumbsup:

Just to clarify for anybody looking for answers to dodgy idle, this fix presumably only applies to N52 facelift cars with Valvtronic, not the pre-facelift M54 or S54?

Correct, my engine is the N52 with Valvetronic.
I have updated the 1st post with that additional info.
