Default Car starts, then dies, then runs fine

This car isnt a speed. its a 2005 regular 3. But just help me out real quick

On occasion (maybe 2 or 3 times so far) a couple seconds after you start it, the rpms will bog down and the car will stall.
Immediately after it stalls it will start again and idle and drive fine. Im curious what people think it is. I would rather fix something now rather then it eventually not starting at all.
Its not bad gas. What else does everyone think?
Thanks

I would start by pulling each plug, check them out then check each coil.
How many miles and have you done all the preventive maintenance on the vehicle?

Have autozone pull freeze frame data off it.... it will tell you if there were any misfires. An occasional misfire won't throw a CEL, but it will be recorded. My truck misfires fairly often and only very rarely to I see the CEL.

I've found that bad idle is usually a problem with spark or with the idle air control valve (if it's cable throttle and not e-throttle) but there are a host of other things that could cause it as well.
