Cold weather idle ????

Yes I have searched...

I have a 2004 325i. I noticed that when the temperature drops below about 35 that my car idles at about 900 rpms. Completely steady... doesn't drop or surge... just a steady 900 rpm. As soon as the temperature warms up it will drop back down to the 600 range which is where it normally idles at. Doesn't matter how long I drive it or let it warm up... seems to be completely dependent on outside teperature. Is this normal? Or should I be concerned?
