Dude, mine runs rough 24/7. ^^ They're a quirky car, it just takes them a second to find a comfrotable idle, so I doubt it's anything to worry about :)

explain more how is it running rough... is it missing or blowing any smoke

the obvious start would be to check the plugs for fouling and check the gaps. Id check for error codes first.

then you can look for vacuum leaks, bad earths, sticking iac valve, sticking injectors, iffy map sensor, iffy tps, leads ofcouse (should be alright if running fine when warm)

the fact its only on startup would suggest one of the above is sticking when cold and freeing up when warm.

but ye more details would be helpfull
