    Anybody experienced bouncing idle whilst coming to a stop it’s only does it for roughly 3 seconds then levels itself out ??

    Have you checked the o2 sensor to see if it's bad?

    Ah lean/rich?
    These are completely different things. Lean is dangerous, so if that’s the case I’d get that checked ASAP.

    I believe an issue with your 02 sensor will trigger a check engine light

    Not sure what you mean by "has decat"? Have you removed the catalytic converter?

    Maybe too many launch modes. You need to see if the flywheel has been overheated and is no longer true.

    Don't really know why your clutch would be slipping, it's usually due to wear and tear or misuse. Only way to really check a flywheel is with a dial indicator once you've removed either the engine or the transmission- a bit of a pia especially on what should be a fairly new car.
