Yep. Happens with me too. Cold motor, and I get that surging on occasion when trying to drive slowly. I've learned to keep it in 1st gear a bit longer and be very gentle letting the clutch out as I shift to 2nd. The M3 is a tricky car to drive slowly on a cold motor. It justs wants to rev, and if you need to drive it slowly, like when exiting your neighborhood, you can get the surging from time to time. Keeping it in 1st definitely helps, however.
