I've noticed my car starts a bit more slowly since the last service (60k). It seems to take about 6 spins before it fires, and it even seems to spin a bit slower. It still starts without problems, however. Could this be due to:
1) Changeover to mineral oil - more viscous when cold? (My garage teperature was 23C this morning.
2) Leaning out the starting mixture in the latest ECU flash?
3) Something else?
4) My imagination?

Hmm a bit harrowing that thread, but it doesn't sound like me. Just had the 60k service with new plugs. It just seems a little slower starting - definitely no signs of flooding. Power seems perfectly normal. The exhaust system is stock, and there's no rattling from the back.
Battery was a bit flat and a good drive topped it up nicely?
Yes, possibly. I'd been in Melbourne for afew days, then did only short drives over the weekend. Actually, it really seems quite lively now. I'd love to know what the intention of each ECU re-flash is.
