Rough Idle on ELXR8!!! Help!!!

I have recently serviced my car, spark plugs and leads included - I have never had this problem before but now it idles very rough and its as if its hunting for fuel - all filters were changed and the leads and plugs have been replaced twice just to ensure no faulty plugs or leads.....all hoses seem to be on and I have cleaned the throttle body for carbon build up....any other ideas...HELP PLEASE!!!
