2014 Camaro RS idle fluctuation

Hello everyone, I just bought a 2014 Camaro recently and I noticed the rpm's are fluctuating at idle. it's barely moving but I feel like the needle should be completely still?

I have a video here



anyone have any ideas on what it might be?

thanks !

Don't press the white arrow in the middle, and your rpms do not move.

My 2013's RPM varies more than that. Not by a lot but it's always done it since I've had her since new

Thanks for the input everybody! I'm not too knowledgable on these kinds of things, so I really appreciate it. Hope everybody has a good weekend, and enjoy your camaros!

As the others have said, totally normal. I don't think I've ever had a car that DIDN'T fluctuate a little.

No engine will be competely still. As long as the rpms are not bouncing around, a tiny little variation is completely normal.
