Pretty weird considering it has no computer controlling the idle or anything.
I'm glad someone finally mentioned this phenomena. My car does the same thing, I never mentioned it before. It's almost like a gasser with an electric choke. The change occurs like clockwork. I'm not complaining about it or want it changed for that matter. Just glad to know it occurs on other MB's.
