    Mines got a lot worse at starting due to the cold dam weather. But first things first...

    When was your last service?
    Or
    When did you last change your plugs?
    When did you last change your oil?
    When did you last change your filters?

    Any mods?
    Any warning lights on?

    Once we have this info we can begin to proceed further with helping you out.

    not very technical, but mate of mine has a S plate 1.8 sport that had exactly the same trouble. Local Vx dealer showed him where the throttle body was and just told him to clean it.

    Now its good as new.......Dont ask me where / what it is though!
