[E30] Start cold Engine - warm

Hi,
I have frustrating problem with my E30, and i don't know which part of Engine can be guilty.
My car:
E30 Coupe, M10B18 316i, LU-Jetronic injection, 1988/04.

When i try start my car in "special" conditions, engine difficult start up:
Engine cold, The heat outside - Hard start up,
Engine cold, cold outside - excellent start,
Engine warm, The heat outside - great start,
Engine warm, cold outside, great start.

I have no idea, what can be solution :/
Do you have any ideas?

Engine also unevenly work in idle rpm.

Sorry for my bad English :/
Regards!

Have you looked into your coolant temp sensor?? I'd probably replace the one for the ECU and the Dash if you can.

I had a similar issue on my E30, and that ended up getting the culprit.

With starting issues (regardless of temperature) as well as uneven idle it points me to vacuum leaks. I'd be checking for vac leaks before swapping out any parts. You can also check the resistance values of your coolant sensors before swapping them out, the spec will be in a manual somewhere.

Today i found large clearance in STARTER VALVE (13641285087)
Is it admissible in that place?

In practice it is larger than that of the movie

I change this two fuel wires, and my BMW start perfect in all weather conditions!
But still, if engine is warm/cold unevenly work in idle rpm, jump 50rpm down/up.
