Mein Auto: 5 and 7 series
Red face Engine stalls in cold weather

I have a 5 series BMW it runs on Petrol and Gas, Since the cold weather has started i have a problem starting and running ,
That is when the temp is under null degrees, the car will start but cut out after seconds of starting this happens both on Petrol and LPG,
i have to feather the gas pedal to get the car moving once above 2000 rpm the engine stays running,
After 10 mins and the engine is up to temp, there is no longer a problem the car runs perfectly, both on LPG and petrol
I have tried disconnecting all plugs going to elc choke and air flow meter, none of these make a differance,
Does any body have any idea what is happening, this the first time i have had this problem the car is 20 years old, but runs perfectly when in warm weather or when the engine is warm
