MCSF on starting from cold

I bought my 54 plate 156 JTS about a month ago. Since then, only when starting from stone cold in the morning, the idle revs will start to oscillate after about 30 seconds and the MCSF warning comes up. It then goes away after about another 30 seconds and is fine for the rest of the day. It happens pretty much every morning. Been to dealers several times. They are detecting a misfire and have changed plugs and swapped coils around, but the problem remains. Idle when warm is slightly lumpy too but I might be paranoid about that.

Other than that, it is a fantastic drive.

Any thoughts?
