Welcome to United Bimmer

Does it only idle rough when it's cold out? What parts have been replaced at the dealership? Did they scan it for any codes?

Take to a place that can scan the OBD system for codes. That will give you a better idea of what is wrong then what the dealer is telling you. Have you cleaned out the ICV (Idle Control Valve)? Cleaning it can make a big difference.

Links to the Bentley and Haynes Manual are available in this section at the top.
