    If someone had left you out in the snow for 3 days you wouldn't want to do much either!

    what's the chances of build up of ice on the injectors taking time to clear? Or something else restricting fuel flow?

    my 1.8 stood for 4 days down to minus 5 at times, had no problems,, but my last vec used to give problems after it had been stood in the cold,,it was the handbrake not releasing fully, check your back wheels next time it does this, if they are over warm,,,,,,,,,

    remember that the engine ecu's are auto adaptive - so if there driven slowly then they will feel sluggish because they have adapted to a slower driving style - when the weather improves and you have the oppertunity to take it for a "spirited drive" you should find over a couple of days that the car returns to "normal"
