if it helps your starting to prime the gas pedal, then i would check your 
control pressure regulator.  when this fails, the FI system 
(CIS E, i believe) has trouble maintaining pressure adequate to the task 
of feeding all of the fuel lines - without help from the gas pedal - 
until the system is very warm, thus leading to a very rough warm-up idle 
and sometimes difficulty starting.

now, this advice comes from experience on a VW rabbit (CIS, not CIS E), 
but i think that the systems are similar enough that i may be on to something.  

hope that i could be of some help.
