feels like the idle is a bit fast

On start up, idle shows about 800rpm, this doesnt really change on hot run but it just seems a bit fast to me,having owned the car for 9 years!
Is there a simple adjustment as one indy says no, has to be reset on computer.

Today,1000 rpm start,drops to 850 rpm warm.

Although I don't own a 32, it sounds normal to me. I think the idle on my 350 is a little over 1000rpm cold, dropping just below warm.
