Has your mechanic...

...performed a leak down test? Often the most obvious reason for rough idle (leaky valves) is overlooked. Even on a relatively new engine (and your 95 with only 60K miles is NEW) valves can leak for a number of reasons. So have your mechanic check this out (if he hasn't already done so).

And enjoy your car. It is a beautiful piece oof mechanical engineering. Good luck.
