I'm thinking your a few day's away from one.

05's are known for idle issues cause by leaking o-rings when it's cold out. Since I replaced the o-rings between the intake manifold and TGV's I have not had a issue. When you see the new o-rings next to the old one's, you'll understand the problem.

$20.00 in parts, a few hours labor to lift the intake a bit and replace them.

Does the car run well other wise ?
