There are a lot of things that can cause your problem. Always check the baisics first #1-is it getting full throttle?,#2-is the basic tune-up OK?
#3-is the trans starting out in the right gear?
300Es are famous for fouling plugs due to worn valve guides and/or rings not sealing (pull the plugs after a cold start and see if they are oily)
All gasoline engine require more fuel when cold (maybe it's too lean)
The plugs need more voltage when cold and MBZ coils fail often.
Hope this gives you some ideas!
