Re: any guesses

Likely a Mass Air Flow meter problem, my mate's one did the same but worse (would not idle when warm, had to be stone cold to start).

Get it on a diagnostic and i bet the MAF will show an error. The maf is easily removed for replacement (it's the bit of duct with the electrical attachments atop the air filter.)
