2011 F10 Idle Fluctuation

I have only had the car a couple of weeks.
Has 13,000 miles, was an executive demo.
Absolutely love it but recently the idle when cranked is fluctuating.
Does not always do it, varies.
Idle will swing between 800-900 to 1300-1400.
Nothing violent, just a little strange.
Anybody else experience this?
Any idea what is causing it?
