It was real bad on my SL. And not just cold starts only. 129s have that same fiberglass guard to protect the fuel pumps, but it can collect a lot of fuel before dripping out of the weep hole. Result: Fumes galore! My wife drives the car, so she tipped me off to the problem.

Turned out to be one of the OEM clamps that held the hose in place...just loosened enough over a period of time to develop a trickle leak at the hose end.

Total DIY repair cost: $0! Had spare clamps in my toolbox...
