2003 996 Rough Idle


Vehicle Information: Year: 2003; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 4,000;

I test drove a 911 and Boxster for 24 hours each in Florida before coming home and making my new 996 purchase. I'm not sure, but I beleive I remember the rentals were smoother while sitting at a red light. Is it normal for the 996 engine to vibrate the car a bit at idle, with a slight tremble here and there? I would prefer my engine to run as if it appreciated the Mobil 1 0W40 oil that is running through its veins!Is everyone else but me enjoying an engine that is silky smooth at idle?Thanks.
