Idle drop (shudder) upon stopping

Hi guys,
Bought a 330ci m sport (2004) for the wife. It's an auto and a beautiful car to drive. Would have preferred a manual but she can't drive it.
Noticed two things I'd like to check to see if it's an auto thing:
1) when taking off normaly car seems sluggish for the first couple of seconds but then it wakes up. I'm taking just normal take off from lights, not spirited at all.

2) upon stopping the car at lights or whatever, there seems to be a slight engine shake/ idle drop for a second or so then normal. Like the revs drop a touch under desired range and then back up. It isn't extreme but noticeable to me. Haven't felt that before in my manual 325ci.

Many thanks
