      I am in no way an expert on G60 stuff so hopefully someone will correct me if I am wrong. I believe a ISV reroute will help your situation.

      It sounds like you're getting unmetered air in somewhere. I would pull a vacuum on it per Bentley.

      How do you know you don't have any leaks? Did you do the proper idle screw adjustment procedure? Ignition timing done correctly? ECU vacuum line plugged in and exactly 1 meter? I would grab a spare known-good ISV and try that (or test it by maintaining your own idle until it warms up with it unplugged). Blue temp sensor could cause weird problems like that (also plugging the wrong harness into the blue temp sensor). Check your idle switch adjustment on the throttle cable and the WOT switch functionality. That is everything easy I can think of.

      Is it still doing it? Did you find the problem? Or is it a hunk of twisted metal at the bottom of a cliff now?

      My guess is: Yes. No. Maybe.
