      If you are running high octane gas and can fit a little more gas in her run 87 and she should start... I had this same problem with my GLI 16v and did this and it starts everytime now. For winter run 89 and your car will start better all the time. Also make sure your getting good gas from a heavily frequented gas station. Hope this helps.

      So lower-octane gas works better than higher-octane in the cold?? That's counter-intuitive to me...could you elaborate as to why?

      lower-octane gas ignites more easily than higher octane gas.

      ...when its cold out, you want the gas to be able to ignite quick

      this happened to me last week. but the problem with mine was my ignition wires. try taking your ignition wires inside and warm them up.
