Idle hunting on cold start

Hi All - new to the forum - really enjoying reading through all the previous posts. Just bought myself an E32 735i as a restoration project - overall car in very good condition for its age. only mechanical issue found so far is that on cold start up the idle hunts up and down. This is quickly resolved by holding it at 1500rpm for a minute and as soon as it gets a little warmth it stops hunting and runs great. Just wondering of anyone else has encountered this issue. I am in Australia, in a warm climate. I was thinking it may be a faulty exhaust sensor? looking forward to some feedback.
Regards,
Jason
