Throttle body question

My throttle body isn't closing all the way on my 2001 740i. Is it supposed to?

Ya. When I start it up in the morning is idles ruff. Basically sounds like a big lift cam or something and it shakes the whole car. After researching some I found a lot of people mention the throttle body so I replaced the gasket (looked ok but i had a new one so i replaced it anyway) and cleaned the throttle body up. That was today and I haven't started it cold yet to see if the problem is still there.

does it do it when cranking, or after it starts until it warms up? Or just for 5-10 seconds after starting?

Why 2 posts asking the same question? This makes it difficult to keep up with replies that you're getting because you may be getting answers in both threads...but they can get separated depending on which thread was replied to the most.
