1999,SLK230, Rough morning starts

Mercedes Benz SLK230 Kompressor 1999

Said car has a very rough start and some white smoke (not a lot) after being parked overnight. This lasts for a few seconds. Ambient temp doesn't matter, engine temp does, when warm no problem.
However several, times when starting rough,(within seconds)I will shut it off and restart it, Starts normal.

No check engine light. On the computer temp sensor is within range. Have had the air intake bypass valve out and cleaned as best we could. All plugs have been changed, some looked fouled.
Feels very similar to a miss fire, but no lasting signs.

(New dealer installed super charger last year)

Any ideas? Thanks

How many miles are on the car? BTW, you should post/search the R170 forum.
