Question '85 500SEL runs rich when cold

Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start?

When I start it cold it runs very rich. It runs great and has plenty of power when warmed-up.

It got a top end rebuild and tune-up six month ago, new ignition module, clean air filter, cannot find any vacuum leaks (but how can you be sure?).
