I have had the starting issue twice. Once after taking it to a "do it yourself car wash". It took me like 6 tries to get her going. I took her to the same car wash a month later and there were no issues on the second time. The other one was one cold morning (30º F) it took me two tries. Very annoying considering I never had any of those issues with my previous 1995 Jetta.
