    When sitting a idle the car is feeling a wee bit lumpy

    it isn't bad, just a slight hesitation , but the rev counter never moves it is spot on.

    You just feel it in the seat, what could it be?

    Good call Swamper. I had that on my 2.0 when I first got it. Made a slight "sucky" sound when revved if I remember correctly and the engine idled/ran a bit rough although nothing extreme.

    This was where mine split... £18 part from BMW.
