There are 2 things that you can have checked out first if not sure: The MAF or oxygen sensors. They can give similar symptoms when faulty. To test the maf, unplug it (don't worry, the idling will be lumpy) the engine should run smoother through the rev range. If the problem is still there, then the maf is most likely not the cause.

Consider investing in AlfaDiag. Which will work on most PCs with a USB socket. Most people (like me) tend to put it off then regret not buying it earlier.
It will give you a good indication if a sensor is failing and is a lot cheaper than a dealer, especially if its a partial failure which don't always show up ever time.
