My '02 C240 does this, and has since day one. The dealer told me once the exact bit that makes the noise when I asked about it, but I forget. The gist was that it's a normal part of cold start...

Hmm... I'm starting to think my install may be slightly harder, since I do not have a CD changer and the cables are not pre-run into the glove box. Which also means, more chances to screw things...

That's actually a fault in the throttle control circuit. Either the throttle position sensor (TPS) has a fault, or the gas pedal itself is failing. Or there's a problem with the wiring harness...
