Rough Idle and Vibration

Hello, I recently picked up a 17 540i M sport. It seems to have a rough idle and vibration at start up and when engine temp is cold and I was wondering if this is normal? Almost resembles a bad engine mount. There’s also a slight vibration when cold. Dealer had installed new front tires before I purchased. Thanks,
Dave

I can't say with absolute certainty, but it sounds very much like it's missing on one of more cylinders. Probably a bad spark plug. Are you getting a CEL?

I had such issue like this with my 18 530i
took it to dealer and they manage to fix that issue now the vibration is very minimal if not gone. btw it wasn't something rough but its noticeable
