1997 BMW 523i shaking problem

My friends,
Could you please help me?

When I start the engine, it works for a while and then the car starts to shake. I feel as if there's no enough revs at idle state. If you had similar problem in the past, could you tell me what to do. My mechanics can't fix the problem because when I take the car to their office the problem disappears. It occurs only when the engine is cold.

Thank you in advance,
With respects,
Babken

Since I bought my car in August 2007 I haven't changed it. You know, my friend, that problem doesn't occur often. Just sometimes. But I'd like to thank you for your opinion. I'll make relevant inquiries.

plugs should be changed every 25000-30000 miles.
