W210 M104 - Rough Idle and weird sounds after parked for 2 weeks.

Was wondering if others have had similar experience with cars parked for extended periods of time.
The idle did get smoother after a few miles but it was just so strange.
I've never experienced anything like this on this car.

Quite normal (at least for the M104). Age-related issues magnify the noises (dried belts, seals etc.).

Mine is normally smooth, but on occasion I've experienced rough idle at startup...even if only sitting for a few days.
