Bosim, just press ILS button to visualize ILS glideslope on PFD. Then APR button as you are close to intercept ILS path.

So maybe FSX simulates a sort of Pitot damage by ice accumulation? Or maybe it's a bug as in default A321 it doesn't happen.. or not so much regularly.

I found that at idle, the aircraft starts moving after a while. I don't know if this happens also on a real airbus, or idle position shouldn't give any thrust to the airplane that should stay still by inertia.
