Let me know if you get an answer as I am experiencing similar problems (cold start post previously). I just replaced my EHA, but I suspect that either my computer is not working or no current to the EHA (testing this weekend). Yeah, the computer can be removed from the system, and it becomes a "K-Jetronic" mechanical system. I'm getting poor mileage, too (19-20 mpg) for my 16v. I'll keep you posted.

Sorry it tool awhile to respond, but my cold start problems was my fuel pump. After inspecting my OVP relay and replacing my EHA, my mechanic found out that my fuel pump was putting out too much pressure at low (and cold) rpm's. I replaced it with a model from a 300E and it runs fine (averaging 22-24 mpg).
