Rough start up

Hello everyone

Thomas, 26 years old from France

I own an E92 DCT M3 and I am trying to deal with an pain in the a*** issue

Got the car in december 2015 and since the begining the start up has seemeed weird to me. Fluctuating rpm's only on morning starts.
At first this would only occur when i left the car a few days.. Actually this happens every day ONLY at the first start...

I have already replaced the ICV, the glow plugs and the low fuel pressure sensor

I have no error codes and car runs just fine but i hate the way the car acts at startup...

What I have noticed is that on a few starts the car did give a pop like a misfire but still no codes.. (Oem exhaust with only modified rear muffler)

Can anyone help out here ? :-(

I love this car so much and have done rod bearings and DCT oil change + joints
I am an mechanic and love working on this car but it can realy a pita some days...

Thanks a lot :-)

Just been doing some more reading... Really don't know what to think anymore every single guy with this issue seems to have replaced a different piece

o2 sensors
Secondary air valves
Fuel vent valves
Some sensor on the servo brake hoses

I'm going to go nuts...

Mine does it as well. I just let it go through the cold start junk and it runs fine. I don't even think about it anymore.

That's the normal cold start cycle. You can have this coded out.

I have geard about coding out the cycle but what do the cats say about that ?

It's more the misfire sensation that I don't like
Fluctuating I can accept but the impression of a missing cylinder i can't deal with

I just deleted the DME adaptation and went for a drive i will see in the morning if it is better...

if i let my car idle for too long, it sort of goes into the cold start cycle for a minute and then goes back to normal. probably too much unburnt fuel while idling so the cold start kicks in to push more air maybe?
