    '13 F800 GT
    Hi All
    I have a 2013 F800GT which has begun cutting out when I throttle down to first gear. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I thought perhaps it might be the idling but I dont know how or where to adjust this.

    The idle speed on the F800 engines can not be adjusted by the owner. Perhaps it can be adjusted at a franchised BMW shop using their computer system. Your cutting out might be the result of a fouled spark plug, or an ignition wire shorting out due to being wet and dirty, or corrosion of the electrical connections.
