Normal Engine idle RPM?

I had my car serviced by an independent, idle RPM now seems a bit high, it is at 900 ??

Mine is barely touches the bottom of the 900 rpm line, its normal. I think normal RPM's in the manual are 8900...

I want to say around 750 or so for mine once it's warmed up.

Correction, it idles at 650 when it's warmed up. 900 sounds quite high for a warm idle.
