    My 120's the same, it feels horrible and a lot more noisy when start-up in the morning. If i leave it for 5 minutes whilst im messing around with the sat nav or something, it quitens down, lumpyness goes and drives much more smoothly. Looking around the only reason i can find is the DMF on it's way out, however i wouldn't have thought leaving it 5 minutes would affect it if its the DMF.

    Have you treated it to a service and changed the fuel filter for starters?

    Glow plugs could be faulty but with this warm weather i very much doubt it uses them for long.
