Hi, what's the fast idle speed from cold on these cold mornings on the 1.4? Mine starts off at about 1500rpm is that normal? I'm used to Bosch injection where it's lower, around 1200rpm.

wouldnt worry about it too much unless its goin up over the 2k mark or not keeping up over 1k very well

1500 thats fine thats what mine does in the cold.. when its really really cold like snowing my car goes to 1600.. just leave it to warm up a bit before driving off.. or shift gears really early until the engine has heated up
