It has just been the last few weeks that it has been cool enough here to turn off the A/C. So I just noticed it. That is in gear, foot on the brake at idle and I don't remember at what rpm but 680 to 750 sounds about right. It picks up about 50 to 100 rpm when the A/C compressor comes on. So I would say at 680 it is a little rough and at 750 it is smooth.
The other thing I notice is the rough idle is not consistent, it seems to modulate a little.
