I know it should´t have anything to do with this , but how do you explain that I cured the warm start issue on my skoda this way ?
newer cars have the plugs on during run in certain conditions I been told due to emissions and stuff related.

They are not on all the time but only during short bursts (sorry for not beaing clear before) but nevermind that, plugs are like the cheapest thing to buy and swap and changing them will not make the car run worse then before ;)

I was having a similarish problem with mine. It would just start, barely run but refuse to rev above idle for up to 30 seconds to a minute.

Main dealer recalibrated it under warranty and now its fine. Indeed its running smoother than it ever has done.

Did they say what they recalibrated? Mine was doing this on occasion a few weeks back (chugging at 400-600rpm for about 5 seconds before catching) but it hasn't done it since.... My car is well outside warranty, so I'm wary of going to a main dealer without knowing what to ask them to do, especially as the problem hasn't happened recently. :D

Failing that, I wonder if an ECU reset is as good as a recalibrate? :}

They didn't say what they did specifically apart from a 'recalibration' but it does seem much better and it is significantly quieter. They didn't remove the battery lead as when they did this on two previous occasions I had to reset various things like windows and the display preferences and they were all okay this time

It's the 1-touch operation. The top of the window's travel is stored somewhere in the ECU/convenience unit and loses its memory when the battery is disconnected :D
