Lumpy Startup!


I have been a long time lurker while i considered purchasing a 2006 1.9 159sw. I eventually succumbed and bought it after scouring the forum for things to look out for and i am delighted with my purchase. I am now a month into Alfa ownership and i think i might have my first niggle. This morning when i went to start the car upon pushing the ignition button the start was rather "lumpy" i.e - it didn't start first time, was second push to get it going. Also once it started and i was about to pull out of my space there was a definite lag in any throttle response where i thought the car was going to stall - would not have been good if i was pulling out onto a busy street.

Does anyone know what may be causing this? I have connected the car to fiatecu and no error codes are shown?
