my 500 idles at 450 rpm, the low end of the acceptable range. does it shudder? do you feel like it will stall? if not, i would not worry about it.

My 83 280se happily idles at 500rpm in drive when fully warmed up. I am actually pleased it is stable and sustainable at that rpm!

Why should that be a problem?

I thought that it was supposed to be around 750rpm. Well it does not have any inclination of stalling and the car runs really quiet. I just thought it was supposed to idle a little higher.
