This is common issue which Audi altered quite a few things over time to
"prevent". It could be a combination of a faulty fuel check valve
(letting pressure drop) and heat soak at the head, vaporizing fuel in
the injector lines. Can result in long cranking, or even no-start until
things cool a little.
[[VB]] That's possible. The 200 10v had the after run fan to cool things
Heat buildup has also, IIRC, been implicated in intermittent Hall
senders on the dizzy.

Might be a completely different issue.

O2 sensor not used while starting. Easy to test when warm running,
though - voltage should cycle up and down between about .3 and .7 volts
DC every few seconds.
[[VB]] I'll check that as I can see this will be a PITA to get out and

The DPR is the little grey box on the front of the fuel distributor with
an electrical connection. Two bolts hold it on; there are two small
o-rings to make sure you don't lose (or have new on hand).
[[VB]] ah! Yes, I had not removed that yet...
Have you made sure *all* the electrical connections (especially CIS ones
of course) under the hood are clean?
[[VB]] I'm cleaning as I go...
