On cold start i get some smoke, more so in cold weather. Any ideas?

Only does it on first start.

Cheers

Did the service include a air and fuel filter? - As the symptoms sound air/fuel related.

Also, it could be the coolant temp sensor as it causes symptoms like you described (but a lot milder) - That can be checked with a multimeter.

Cam wear doesn't affect 130's it'll be a cracked cylinder head rough start then settles down once warm up of engine - heat closes crack I have this problem on mine 4 of the five replacement heads I have bought have had this problem too so big issue they crack where the injector sits next to the valve as it's only a tiny gap between them
