I believe you have the M50 non-VANOS motor in your car. I would go buy yourself a Bentley's manual as it will help you become an informed owner and it can and will save you some dosh!

It could very well be your idle control valve causing the cold start problems. I would also go along with the other suggestion to go synthetic with the oil.
