Stupid cold weather.
Unless you are dealing with crappy injectors with a poor spray pattern, this behavior should be something that can be tuned out.

I've even got my wife's car starting and warming up nearly perfect (has a slight idle hunt 30 - 45 seconds after starting until it warms up). It took a bit more work, probably because it has the EJ207 so there's no TGVs.

Who tuned your car?

If you're OS tuned and want some help messing around with the warm up stuff, let me know.
