    quick question: does your rev needle stay right at the 800rpm (where it should be) or it goes little bit higer or lower (for a needle width)? is this thing normal?
    thanks for help

    mine goes to zero when l switch the motor off and away up to 7000 when l floor it. But at idle its usually about 800-900

    nature of the beast. Despite the electronic idle stabilization function you will get a slight deviation in revs whilst at idle. It's vastly improved from 10+ years ago where cars of this nature would have seen quite some fluctuation.

    Completely normal, and if you mod it you may see a scrap more movement.

    Perfectly normal, the ECU can ramp the idle up a bit to compensate for the aircon cutting in or the power steering taking extra power from the alternator.
