I've experienced hard starting with the 200q20v a couple times this fall 
when I've not driven the car for a day or two and the weather has been 
particularly wet.  Both times, the starting process has been two or three 
20-second abuses of the starter followed by stumbling and reluctance to 
remain running unless revs are kept above 1500 for a couple of minutes.  It 
took a thorough warming up and 10 to 15 minutes of driving to clear 
up.  Once it's running smoothly again, it runs and starts normally.  I 
assume I have a wet wires syndrome that takes a couple days of soaking to 
take effect.
