Mein Auto: 328I Xdrive
2011 328x 2000 miles rough idle

Ok I had the car looked at this passed Saturday and the service guys at my BMW shop did not find any problems. But when I start the car up in the morning the idle is jumping up and down for a few min. Any one have any clue ?? As no codes were in the computer and tech did not see a issue.

A BRAND NEW CAR with only 2000 miles? Are you seriously suggesting that the solenoids need cleaning? And that the OP does it when he has 46 months and 48K miles left on his warranty?

Take it back and leave it with them until they fix it.
